Sports! Yeah, love em, uh totally.
We know that athletics isn’t really a part of our usual coverage. But it’s a slow news day and this is too good to pass up. Plus, it’s tangentially music-related!
Lance Armstrong has went from universally adored American Hero to a cautionary tale in a fall so public, so spectacular, that you must have heard something about it. Like, maybe his “tell-all” interview with Oprah Winfrey where he admitted to using performance enhancing drugs? They made a pretty big deal about it.
Well here’s a bit of shadenfreude to start off your work week. Intrepid filmmaker Matthijs Vlot took a couple of soundbites from said interview and turned the conceding athlete into Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke through a bit of audiovisual trickery. “Creep” is a fitting choice for Armstrong for a number of reasons. To hear the cyclist sing, “I want a perfect body” is worth the price of admission alone.
Watch Lance Armstrong sing “Creep” after the jump.
