HOW HAVE I NEVER HEARD OF THIS ACAPELLA GROUP BEFORE YESTERDAY????
Seriously friends and fans, you have failed me – and I won’t soon forget it. Anyway, here they are doing a compilation called The Wizard of Ahhhhhs:
Here they are covering the Imagine Dragons song Radioactive:
If you watch their other videos you get a feel for what kind of upbeat nerds these guys are. To see them get made up all hardcore in that video cracks me up – especially the lead-singer in the song. He sells it.
Here’s the song everybody covers: Somebody That I Used to Know by Gotye:
Interesting story about their tenor (who I think is the best voice in the group, he’s unreal – that little run he does at the 2:38 mark in the last video was so pure): he was bullied in school because of his voice. I’m glad he didn’t run from his voice and instead choose to embrace it over his haters. He talked about it when Pentatonix was working with the Trevor Project (a charity that fights suicide in youth on account of bullying).
But what really puts them over the top is that they do an *Nsync medley (JC was way better than Justin):
What a bunch of fun music nerds. I approve.
