Sometime you just happen onto something as it's going viral. It feels kind of like
when you went to a show by that band, and they were great, and then a
year later they're on the radio all the time, but you knew them before
that and that just reinforces your sense of superiority to others
because you knew them before it was cool. Remember that breathless kind of feeling? Well, nowadays that lasts all of 45 minutes. Anyway, the Daily What, which along with The Best Defense and Nightwatch, is something you should read everyday. Today they posted this video with a very simple tagline that I completely agree with.

Stop What You’re Doing And Watch The Hell Out Of This of the Day: The
most moving lip dub of Queen and David Bowie’s “Under Pressure”
performed by a homeless man holding two Kermit puppets you will see
today, guaranteed. Now,
while I have no reason to believe the guy in the video isn't homeless, I
have no proof that he is either. If he is, the first puppet show in
town should hire him, if he's not, it's a moving piece of performance
about homelessness. And you know what, it's been a rough couple of years
out there and there are people on the street who never thought they'd
end up there. Remember, you knew about
it first, here. Or if it doesn't go viral, you'll forget anyway as it
recedes into the dimness of your internet meme addled memory. All your
base are belong to us.
