Just last week Radiohead released The Kings of Limbs, their 8th album. With it, a video for one of the songs, Lotus Flower, which I’m embedding below:
What did you think when you watched it? I thought “that’s some funny dancing by Thom Yorke”. And then I moved on with my life.
But some people have richer imaginations and way too much time in their hands, so the parodies started. So they started dubbing the Radiohead’s video with other songs, and the results are quite funny. Enjoy watching Thom Yorke dancing to Ke$ha’s We R Who We R, Beyoncé’s Single Ladies, or We No Speak Americano. Oh, the Internet…
And them some French ones came up with a “Course on Body Language with Thom Yorke” (in French), which is brilliant and hilarious in so many ways:
fig. 1: the shower head
fig. 2: the egyptian
fig. 3: the buffoon
fig. 4: the rag
fig. 5: the wall pocket
fig. 6: the karateka
fig. 7: the lotus
fig. 8: the acorn
fig. 9: the prayer
fig. 10: the fan
Oh, and one thing that wasn’t made as a joke, but I think it’s spot on. This guy thought that the crazy dancing would go well with the eclectic beat in Radiohead’s 15 Step. And I think he’s quite right:
Looking forward to see what else people will come up with.
UPDATE: Here’s some more good ones: Thom getting Rick Rolled, the Surfin’ Bird, and Benny Hill’s theme song.
