Video plus lipsynching equals fun

You know those days when you come home to an empty house, having spent half the morning in a hospital gown and a doctor doing ultrasound scans on your testicles, and then half the afternoon trying to work your way through a pile of immediate website fixes before getting to the stuff that you promised someone in another unit that you’d finish in two days and that was three and a half weeks ago?

Well, this video is something akin to an antidote to those kind of days. According to b3ta.com this is “just a bunch of Americans mucking around and miming to Harvey Danger‘s ‘Flagpole Sitta’.”

It made me smile.
