Who hasn’t been in this position before? You’re riding a form of public transit, heading to a long day of work. You have your music playing and just want to sing… but can’t. Well, this guy embodies that dream.
Here’s why this clip rocks:
1. The guy is riding a bus in Jersey City at 8 a.m. and starts belting out “California Gurls” by Katy Perry (you might remember the many parodies of this song already out there?).
2. Katy Perry is totally hot right now. She actually just set a record with 5 number one hits off one album. Her album “Teenage Dream” has given the world “California Gurls,” “Firework,” “E.T.,” “Teenage Dream” and most recently “T.G.I.F. (Last Friday Night)” (I called that one). The only other artist with an album like that? Michael Jackson.
3. This guy has a Walkman. Mega retro points.
4. “California Gurls” is an epic song choice. Would only have been better if he sang Snoop Dogg‘s part.
Before you ask, yes, there is an autotuned version with added instruments.
