Not content to only make one Portal-themed remake of a Nightmare Before Christmas song, Harry101UK returns with “The Wheatley Song,” a rendition of “Oogie Boogie’s Song” performed by everyone’s favorite personality core that isn’t the space core. It’s not the world’s best Wheatley impression, but it’s far from the worst, either. Although I’m wondering what, if anything, Harry101UK could do next. I’d say he should leave well enough alone, but the next logical “performer” is Cave Johnson, and I think the world needs more Cave Johnson-themed music. Thanks to Lisa R. 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.
