What does the music video for a Song of Summer contender look like without its catchy tune? Horrifying, disturbing, and mesmerizing.
College Humor teamed up with Music Videos Without Music to release a new version of Miley Cyrus’ “We Can’t Stop” video sans the actual song. While already well known as an odd video depicting the pop singer twerking till the sun comes up, what makes this version so off-putting is the addition of strange sounds to go along with the eerie images.
Check it out (if you dare) here:
The sure-to-go-viral video is the latest in a series from the humor site and Music Videos Without Music. Other stripped-down clips include Macklemore and Ryan Lewis’ “Thift Shop” and Psy’s “Gangnam Style.”
I’m torn between what upsets me more: the sound of the pink tubby custard exploding onto the fake fingers and very real knife or the offscreen dry heaves heard as Miley takes a moment to reflect the morning after. What’s your take on the video: A Clockwork Orange lite or just another girl who wants to have fun?
