I desperately have to sign offline and move on with my life, but I just got hijacked by that guy who makes “tribute videos” of celebs singing. I found that he’s done them not just for Jer and Sinatra and Elvis and Marilyn and JFK, but for Diderot, Che, Voltaire, Blaze Starr, Brad Pitt, and King Frederick of Prussia. He just might be my brain-warping hero of YT this month.The episode featured above is Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. "singing" Stride Toward Freedom from "the new music theater show Crisis in Camelot by Ernest R. Tello."
Today happens to be the anniversary of Dr. King's "I Have a Dream" speech. The text-to-speech robots who secretly control Boing Boing consider this an appropriate homage; please forgive me if you do not. Here's video of Dr. King's historic speech, btw, all LOLs aside.
