Oh god. There’s clearly something about Indiana Jones that invites people to sing songs about the whip-wielding archaeologist, but that somehow prevents them from creating things that aren’t atrocious. For example: this guy, who’s made his own song to John Williams’ Indy Theme. Now, the guy has a decent voice, but between the lyrics and the video, I actually want to skin myself it’s so tragic. Now, I’ll still put it above this one, which just makes me hate. But please, don’t watch this?it’s like looking into the Ark…but while a guy sings the Indiana Jones theme. Your ears will melt faster than your face, if you’re lucky.
Notably, the same dude has created a similar work for the Back to the Future theme?not Huey Lewis’ “Power of Love,” of course, but the orchestral music?which includes him playing Marty, Doc and a few other Martys, and even harmonizing with himself. It actually walks the fine line of being clever and funny before toppling over the side and forcing me to beat my head against the desk until I fell unconscious?check it out here at your own risk. No thanks to industrious Nazi-hater Clarence for the tip.
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
