Thom Yorke Dances To Comically Inappropriate Songs

By Gabe Delahaye / February 21, 2011 - 11:30 am

Thom Yorke made a new album? And a music video? And people have already taken that music video and re-edited it to other people’s songs, namely people who do not sound very much at all like Thom Yorke or Radiohead, and put THOSE videos up on-line? And this is all probably old news already? Classic Internet. If you already knew about this then I am sorry. Just kidding. You know what the word sorry means, right? It’s actually a really meaningful and important way to express genuine regret, which is one of the more powerful human emotions and can be very destructive obviously but also can be very useful in terms of keeping society’s moral fabric together. So, no, as far as whether or not you already knew about a couple of YouTubes that I am just finding out about now, I am not “sorry.” (Oof. Sorry? It’s so fun going back to Word School, right? THIS NEW GUEST BLOGGER STINKS!) But, so, right, anyway–SIDENOTE: do you get your sea legs back or do you need to get land legs back after having sea legs? Whichever it is, that is the metaphor I want for today–after the jump, Thom Yorke dancing to Beyonce and also Willow Smith. Obviously.
