I had friends who did King Crimson in the mid-90s at a school talent show so, to each their own. Personally, I got a friend to dress in drag and the other three of us all mimed instruments to "Hobo Humpin' Slobo Babe" but then again, we had class.

I actually felt kinda bad about submitting this after the fact.. we've all got at least one talent show gone wrong somewhere, recorded on a shaky camcorder, hiding like the Arc of the Covenant in our parents' basements, used only to embarrass you when you bring your new significant other over for dinner.. As of now these poor kids have been seen about a million times.

To make matters worse, this isn't just a parent with an iphone, but rather Grosse Pointe Music Academy's video, posted on their channel. For penance I'm going to make an effort to find my third grade talent show entry where I did a pro-environmental "parody" of YMCA called (recycle your) C-A-N-S and convert to youtube. I puked halfway through and the next act had to dance around my sawdust-covered vomit.

I'm pretty sure Grosse Pointe Music Academy posted this on their channel in hopes that it would become a viral marketing sensation. Don't feel bad for submitting this. You're doing the Lord's work.

Well I'll be damned:


YOU WIN THIS ONE, GROSSE POINTE. But at what cost? Are page views and mindshare really worth sacrificing the dignity of your young charges?

infinite zest - 2014-06-25

Heh not to mention this:


EvilHomer - 2014-06-25

Well shit, if that's all one needs to do to get a celebrity endorsement, maybe I should upload a video of myself, kicking over my laptop while furiously masturbating to Ariana Grande?

Soon, I will be a star.

I had my chance to sing with bob pollard because he recognized me from a commercial, but I turned down his offer because I was drunk and didn't have their (then) new album. In fact they only played like 2 songs off Bee Thousand, the only one I really listened to.

EvilHomer - 2014-06-25

The football player?

Also, per the tags, is there something wrong with covering music you like that came out before you were born? Shit, I'd better stop playing Beatles songs. And Beethoven.

infinite zest - 2014-06-26

Good point. Most of the music I play is made by people who died 500 years ago, but assuming we're in the same relative age-group we don't remember Weezer like the Beatles or Beethoven. I covered Sister Ray back in a high school band and that was before my time.. I dunno. Something about the banality of the original source material, like a group of kids covering Black Hole Sun or anything by Stone Temple Pilots. Weezer fans feel free to attack. I never liked anything from them except for Pinkerton.

God, Whale? You just referenced WHALE? That video used to bother me so much. I knew that woman was supposed to be really hot, and then she would open her mouth. Arggg

The keyboard gets the exact same applause a wounded football player gets as he's carried off the field.

Time to go home and listen to American Football and cry

infinite zest - 2014-06-25

Heh.. If you click on the original's page, it looks like the music school posted the second go. If there's one thing that this band and mike kinsellas have in common, it's fucking up a perfectly good pop song and inexplicably making it 1000x better.

spikestoyiu - 2014-06-25

You know Mike Kinsella, but Weezer is emo? I don't know anything anymore

chairsforcheap - 2014-06-24

i love the two taps the drummer kid does on his hi hat out of nervousness right after

Seems like Grosse Pointe Music Academy's been remiss in teaching them the most fundamental rule of performance:
Get down on your belly and keep playing that keyboard, kid.

EvilHomer - 2014-06-25

Hear hear. When something like that happens, you make it part of the act. Keep singing and smash that keyboard to pieces! Then light it on fire, while your cha-cha dancing guitarist spews mouthfuls of Jameson into the crowd!

I blame their limp reaction on a tragic lack of drugs. They should have given the kids drugs before the show.

Amazon Keyboard Stands (sort by price)

BHWW - 2014-06-25

Still better than the actual Weezer.

badideasinaction - 2014-06-25

Like a soldier throwing themselves on a grenade, the keyboard did what it had to do to

oddeye - 2014-06-26

May your God(s) rest your soul, Private Keyboard.

oddeye - 2014-06-26

No-one would have even noticed if they hadn't have stopped. Fucking amateurs. You don't stop for NOTHING, bitches.

The show MUST go on.

Sometimes it's the videos that take the longest to get out of the hopper that get the most comments.

Jet Bin Fever - 2014-07-01

The keyboard has great comedic timing.

Gwago - 2021-05-02

The awkward way the guitarist puts down his guitar.

It may not have been a guitar, but we've all done that.
