ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
The one and only Bruce Lee, remixed by melodysheep.
Empty your mind
Be formless, shapeless
"Be Water My Friend! Bruce Lee Remix"
Empty your mind
Be formless, shapeless
Eclectic Method did a grand remix with Enter the Dragon: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hZ9Ms4–5NE
As did Colourbox in their song “Edit the Dragon.”
Also, juice your veggies and do 10,000 sit-ups.
That was pretty good. A little too auto-tuned though.
Here’s an Underworld Video inspired by a Bruce Lee essay; ‘Living: The Oneness of Things’
And there’s also this (Underworld ‘Bruce Lee’):
Mostly it just made me want to have a threesome with young (and live) Bruce Lee and Chuck Norris.
Walker “Texas Birther” wouldn’t go for that.
Maybe if someone had gotten to him before his brain calcified, he wouldn’t have turned out that way.
A furry one and a smooth one. Good taste.
Somehow that seems like a cross between the Bruce Lee Remix and the (autotuned) remix of Carl Sagan’s Glorious Dawn
Same dude did both.
My favorite Bruce Lee Youtubes are Miracle Jone’s Bruce Lee poetry (yup, he wrote poetry) clips. For example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hmhAzGpxE2U.
This reminds me of that Mr. Rogers remix….really similar
Yeah, same guy.
Indeed. I really enjoy all the remixes I’ve heard of theirs so far. If you liked the Mr. Rogers one, do check out the Julia Childs and Bob Ross remixes at the least!
He also did the Bob Ross remix and I kept hearing “happy little trees” while I was watching the Bruce Lee thing. For Bob Ross, I felt this overly autotuned treatment was appropriate. He was not a good painter but a sweet, encouraging guy who brought a smile to your face. But, to me, this approach was completely barf for Bruce Lee. Bruce Lee was such a skilled, impressive martial artist, quick as a bird. I felt like this approach belittled his work, reducing years of training to a fortune cookie message.
How do you get it to play without the commercial at the beginning? I watched it on YT and there was a commercial first. I embedded it on my FB from your link and again there was a commercial first. Weird.
AdBlock? I didn’t get an ad.
Watching this made me want to go look for a Cato vs. Clouseau remix.
Found a Birdy Num Num remix instead. Enjoy. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OU-4C9lN7XQ
I was expecting Marcus Porcius Cato.
I finally understand why Bruce Lee was so awesome. Thanks.
Now watch everything he shows up in. All movies. All documentaries. All interviews. We are humans. Bruce Lee is something else.
A few years back I got into Bruce Lee and bought a box set of all his movies. If you want to really see how great he is, his last movie Game of Death is an interesting watch. He only shot four of the fight scenes before he died; the rest of the movie was shot with two doubles. The doubles were world class fighters, chosen for their skill not their similarity in appearance or acting abilities. It’s obvious when Lee is on the screen and when it’s a double. For one thing, the double is always wearing hilariously large sunglasses. But, what’s amazing to see is that these two fighters look so slow compared to Lee.
This movie also has a fight scene with Lee’s student Kareen Abdul-Jabbar, who is around 7 feet tall. The scene alone is worth the price of admission, especially for the moment when Bruce Lee seems to levitate, balanced only on his hands, straight as a board, feet floating off the floor, then he pops up to fight with great force.
Best part was Bruce Lee kicking Chuck Norris’s ass. That needs to happen more often.

Masta Killa from Wu Tang Clan has used the water speech sample in a pretty cool track in 2004:
Heh I also sampled this little speech: http://soundcloud.com/ajnachakra/ajnachakra-dirty-like-water
