This is possibly the greatest thing I've ever heard/seen in my life. This man is a genius.

I can't decide what I like about it the most. The song itself, his dance moves, his adidas suit, the girl in the blue dress with black boots, her dance moves, the fact that it was made in 97, the fact that in the "adult" version he says "giving head to the man", the couple times that he accidentally sings the adult lyrics even though he's lip syncing, or how it was considered the worst video in some vh1 list.

EDIT: Uploaded his Self tittled album below. I'll just put it here

Couple sample songs

Nice little acoustic song that gets a bit edgier with electric guitars mid way. It's about him being the anti-Christ. Nothing particular special about. Sounds good though.

This one is a bit Primusish. Nice screaming. Fun drum beats(my favorite part). And dissonant guitar/saxaphone jazz solos.

his facial expressions are the key to his success.

[edit] that and the dude they randomly cut to with huge sideburns.

Oh, how can I forget Sideburns? He's awesome too.

"Bobby Conn is known for his elaborate (and untrue) press releases, and for lying in press interviews. Over the years he has claimed to be the Antichrist, to have cut off his ring finger, to have served time in a federal facility in Maryland, and to have invented "The Continuous Cash Flow System" in order to bring down America by creating a huge national debt."

I'm in the middle of listening to his self-titled album. Sounds pretty sweet so far. Will upload it later tonight.

PS: I downloaded this album of a guy called SuperGayHomo in soulseek.

The album itself pretty genre-jumping. Avant-garde, funk, 70s disco, blues, proggy, and some other random stuff thrown in. I only really enjoyed about half of it. The rest was okay or just too weird for me to stay stay interested in. Still recommend it.

also, I love this

i'm bumping this because i love sir sideburns.

times to check out:
1:37 -- you can see his head pop in a bit as he's doing his patented move, seen clearly at...
2:08 -- the infamous hunch, finger jab and spin!
2:18 -- here he defies dance genres by doing a clawing motion combined with some sweet kicks
2:35 -- seen here he relaxes a bit and does some swing kicks
3:18 -- he jives his way on camera yet again with some claps
3:45 -- his signature head jiggle is demonstrated clearly at this point, with a bit of spazzing

clearly, 2:08 is the highlight of the video. sideburns' dancing is second only to mr. bobby conn himself.

I love this guy. "United Nations" is one of my favorites. I used to play it on my college radio show.

I could probably right an essay on every brilliant minuscule detail of this video. It just seems so authentic. From the presenter's stutter to the cheesy white suburban dance moves. Of course sideburns tops it all, but even the minor characters have awesome roles in the video. The goth chick at the very back that doesn't seem very enthusiastic about being there. The awkward dancer in the brown dress shirt who accidentally bumps into the lady at 3:07. The black father who's probably thinking thefuck is wrong with these crazy white folk. I love them all.

United Nations is one of my favorites as well. I love hearing the a cappela part in the middle of a punk song. It's great.

i completely agree, jebus. each dancer has their own story which unfolds throughout the video. blue dress & boots clearly has one of the most important roles. she looks sadly down on bobby during his lament on how hard he's tried. and then later she jovially beings pumping her fist and swinging elbows as bobby describes how the people will rise up and say "no" to the man. she also starts stepping way too high when bobby's down so the camera almost looks goes up her dress a few times.

plaid shirt is fairly boring other than his extreme nodding skills.

and maybe it's just me, but red dress & leggings doesn't appear to be wearing a bra.
