For better or for worse, every single thing that has happened in your life so far is the culmination of an inextricable thread of an infinite number of decisions all of them inexorably linked into an unbreakable chain of events leading to the moment that you watched this movie. Sliding doors, man. Amistad. (Via PopCultureBrain.)

  1. This is crazy!


  3. This brings me such joy . I hear this song about 20 times a day at work, and now this will play in my head instead.

  4. I prefer Sunffleufagus’ version of “Friday.”

  5. More like “share this video”…amirite? guys?

  6. we are approaching critical mass on “Call Me, Maybe” in which the Laffer curve takes effect and the joy diminishes.

  7. I want to go to that party. There are probably good cookies there.

  8. I sort of purposely live under a rock when it comes to music, so I still haven’t heard any version of this song. But I live in fear that one day I will hear it and it will pop into my head at random times and torture me (much like “Moves Like Jagger” which I didn’t hear for a loooong time; like Rufus Humphrey was already talking about it on Gossip Girl before I heard it).

  9. I thought he was in cookie rehab. Relapse maybe?

  10. Looking forward to Tom Waits to cover this version and watch the internet complete a full circle.

    • Didn’t the Roots/Jimmy Fallon cover version achieve roughly the same thing, what with the unusual instrumentation? Minus, of course, the whole “sounding-like-they-use-roofing-tar-as-mouthwash” thing, which is Tom Waits’ trademark.

      • I now realize that a better joke would have said something about the Tom Waits version of this being the vocals from this + the Jimmy Fallon/Roots music.

        Mea culpa.

  11. I really like this. I totally dig all of Sesame Street’s little parodies — True Mud, the Mad Men one, this. Good job, Sesame Street.

  12. Where the fvck are the blast beats!?!?
