The gang take on the Oxford band's back catalogue
Remember that Radiohead parody made out of Spongebob Squarepants clips? Each one corresponded to a different album throughout the band’s catalogue that each era of the band absolutely nailed on. Even guitarist Jonny Greenwood was into the viral hit, calling it “perfect in every way”.
But why be satisfied with perfection? Why not strive for even more in life aka more Radiohead parodies via supercuts of popular TV shows? That’s right, someone’s only gone and summed up Thom Yorke’s gang with another pretty on-point montage, this time from It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia. In the comments, some people are proclaiming it to be “even better” than last year’s Spongebob genius, and who are we to argue?
And how could we, when ‘The Bends’ is represented so impeccably by Dennis curled up on the floor in the fetal position after losing Family Feud, repeatedly crying, “This doesn’t represent me!” Or how about ‘Kid A’, brought to televisual life in a scene where Frank convinces Cricket to suck on a lemon? ‘Hail To The Thief”s protest themes are given the Always Sunny treatment with a clip of Dennis reading a political speech in front of an American flag and giant dollar bill. His speech ends: “This doesn’t make any sense!”
Perhaps most fitting of all, though, is the final clip for ‘A Moon Shaped Pool’. Taken from second season episode ‘Mac Bangs Dennis’s Mom’, it features a waitress hysterically crying at Dennis, “You said that you loved me!”, which sums up the album’s weepy, emotional air completely. Check it out above.
