GUYS SINGS "STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN" BACKWARDS

A Dutchman who obviously has a lot of free time on his hands named Jeroen Offerman learned how to sing Led Zep's "Stairway To Heaven"... backwords. It took him three months. Then he videotaped himself singing it and played that backwords. Just the kind of utterly pointless behaviour that makes life worth living!

Pretty cool!
Reminds me of the Man in Red from Twin Peaks.

How long before the lawyers for Led Zep make YouTube pull that video for copyright violations? Probaly quicker then you can say Roger and the Goosebumps.

Heh, yeah, I thought of "Twin Peaks" too: he shops at my local supermarket! I've never spoken to him, though - what do you say to a dancing backwards-talking midget?

Sure enough, the video's been taken down at the request of... Jeroen Offerman! There's a novel twist.

Oh well, he can have his precious video. It's much less impressive than Bill Lamphier's "New York, New York", anyway, where the entire band is playing backward! See web page link.

Ahem. This link: Bill Lamphier's Mystery Tune

Mr Fab said...

Ah, poo. Why bother taking it down? He can't do anything with it anyway, since Zep holds the copyright...

That backwards "New York" is awesome, thanks a mil for that!
