Barber Shop Quartet Day Meets Skrillex [VIDEO]
When I saw that today is Barber Shop Quartet Day, I’ll admit that I didn’t get really excited about it. That is, until I went to YouTube and saw they’re celebrating with recommended videos. Of those on their sidebar, I didn’t see this particular video, but it immediately came to mind. It’s a cover of “Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites” by Skrillex.
When you think of a Barbershop Quartet, you think of four men, dressed in old-time clothing, beautifully melding their voices together to make music. You don’t think of one man using his voice to play several parts, then putting them together for an amazing result.
I first saw this video a while back. It’s done by a man who goes by Aaronicstuff, and he may be one of the most talented voices on YouTube, or perhaps he just has a lot of free time on his hands. I’m guessing it’s the former, because he’s a college student and I periodically see posts on his Facebook about a test he’s taken or a class he’s working on.
Watch it and let me know if you’re as blown away as I was.
