This is my shout-out to what is easily one of YouTube’s most talented and hilarious individuals. For those unfortunate enough to not yet know him, this person redubs music videos not only with new vocals that match entirely the lip movements of the original performer, but also with a totally different melody which always is, impressively enough, a whole lote better than the original song!

This user is named BadLipReading and I’m not sure how much help he gets when creating these unbelievable vids but the work is undeniably impressive! Creating new lyrics to perfectly match the original mouth movements, whilst sometimes even trying to keep the lines somewhat coherent, if rather strange, is hard enough, but then replacing the original music with a vastly superior song and recording all the voices (even the female ones) by yourself – that is talent with a capital T. And yet it is guys like him who are forced to take a backseat to Ray William Johnson, Fred and PewDiePie. This planet sucks. A lot.

But either way, BadLipReading is something I’m sure even those who are turned off by comedy that’s actually clever are able to enjoy at the end of the day. I’ll list some of the best ones below. I gotta say that my favourite is probably “Everybody Poops”, which is his dub of “Boom Boom Pow” by Black Eyed Peas, for the follwing reasons: it has the most impressively coherent but still weird lyrics of all his vids, it does gross poop humour right, it’s the most hilariously edited video and it is his catchiest song which is extra admirable seeing as “Boom Boom Pow” is one of the worst songs I’ve ever heard.

Here’s some examples. Hopefully you’ll love it as much as I do.
