CopperCab's 'Why Can't We All Get Along' - An Anthem for Gingers, Muslims and the Internet
Just when you think that the ginger world's foremost spokesperson has reached the peak of surreality, he releases a "We Are The World"-style anthem, sung a cappella, half off-frame, sitting in a parked car.
Watch the video, an Auto-Tune remix, and more after the jump.
Allow me to share with you his all-caps description (It wouldn't be CopperCab without some hysterics).
I KNOW MY SINGING IS HORRIBLE AND THE SONG WASN'T GREAT.. BUT I WAS JUST FEELING REALLY MELANCHOLY ABOUT THINGS IN MY LIFE NOT EXACTLY GOING THE RIGHT WAY.. AND I'M JUST SICK OF ALL THIS HATE ON THE INTERNET AND IN THE WORLD.. WITH THE QURAN BURNINGS AND 9/11 AND ALL THESE DISASTERS.. I JUST SANG OFF THE TOP OF MY HEAD.. NONE OF MY LYRICS WERE WRITTEN DOWN IN FRONT OF ME.... I'VE BEEN TOLD THAT SINGING CAN BRING PEOPLE TOGETHER AND STOP HATE. HOPEFULLY THIS WILL DO SOME OF YOU SOME GOOD..
I'm just picturing a lone figure standing among the rubble at Ground Zero, shakily holding a Qur'an in one hand and a lighter in one hand. Then he gets a call on his Blackberry. A friend sent him CopperCab's song. The camera whirls around him in slow motion as his face slowly turns from rage to a hopeful smile. His arms are outstretched, the lighter falls to the ground with a boom. Cut to A SPIDERHOLE IN THE MIDDLE EAST. A single tear streams down the cheek of OSAMA BIN LADEN as he views the video on A TV FROM THE 80s. Anyway, here's the inevitable Auto-Tune remix.
Thanks YouTube. Bond together. Don't separate.
