The 10th Summer Jam Of 2010: Othelio’s “Lift Me”

Othelio are clearly the next Susan Boyle. NOT!

In addition to being just one of the hottest summer jams from one of the crispest, cleanest, most in date groups, this clip serves as a welcome reminder that America is not the only land of goblins and nightmares. Even in the Queen’s England, a pair of sad middle-aged dreamers with a complete lack of self-awareness will be kept around a reality TV show that is ostensibly about discovering talent in order to provide schadenfreude laughs to a gruesome audience. Hahaha?! Of course, in England it is called “lorryfreude.” (Thanks for the tip, Bridget.)
