Shut Your Mouth.

This guy is a bad mutha…

To me, Isaac Hayes’ “Theme from Shaft” may be the most transcendent piece of film music ever made. So, this guy, above, is either leading the greatest travesty of all time, or the second coolest thing ever: The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain’s rendition of the famed work. Don’t tell me I never gave you anything.

Also on that YouTube thread: excellent versions of SMELLS LIKE TEEN SPIRIT and HEY YA.

Ukulele players are not taking themselves seriously! They are making fun of themselves not the music! This is the Eng-lish (But,they may be Brit-ish,) at a folk festival, looking like they should be performing in a concert hall.
I hope Issac Hayes would have a good laugh at this tribute! Not sure about ‘spot the Black Man’ though!
Cringe making! But that’s the Brits for you. I am one, so I know of what I am speaking! Issac Rules for true!

When I read your post I automatically assumed it would be awful, but after watching it I realized that it was hilarious.

Imitation is the best form of flattery, right?
