The Newest Internet Craze by People with Too Much Time

by Jason Jones

The newest internet craze to be filed under the sub folder of "Some People Have Too Much Time on Their Hands" is something called Misheard Lyrics. This is a favorite pastime for my wife, who loves spending a great deal of time at night searching for tedious funny stuff on the internet. Things like videos of cats dancing to music, people getting hurt doing stupid stuff, etc. The newest adventure is Misheard Lyrics, which is exactly what it sounds like. A great example of this, and almost everyone knows someone who has made a fool of themselves doing this, is the Cingular commercial that aired last year.

Well, what these kids have done, (I can only assume they are young people considering how much time it must take to construct one of these), is taken actual songs and comprised a video slide show animating the lyrics INCORRECTLY. Some of them are actually very funny.

This particular video is of Fall Out Boy's "This Ain't a Scene, Arms Race" song, which is hard enough to know the words to. Those are funniest ones. If you are unsure of the lyrical content, you can bet it will be funny.

So, if you're REALLY bored or need a laugh, just go into Youtube and search:
