TikTok is home to some of the worst and best the internet currently has to offer. It is, for example, the first destination to keep up to date with cool trends like throw beans on porches, sitting like Laura Dern, intentionally pissing your pantsWhere finding new ways to induce horrible diarrhea. On the other hand, it’s also a place where you can go and have your favorite songs ruined by some asshole who wants to point out how much the singer of a track sounds like a celebrity.

A TikTok user with the handle “snipermike253” worked hard to put together an entire series that underscores these comparisons. Each video follows the same format: Snipermike stares straight into the camera as a song starts playing. He then smiles a smirk, knowing that what he’s about to do can forever change the listener’s relationship with a song, and a photo of the actor, comedian, or cartoon character. anime in question appears.

Although not all of his comparisons are successful, it is difficult to hear SpongeBob in a Linkin Park song Where Stewie Griffin in Tame Impala-the best does exactly what it intends to do.

For example: We will never be able to hear REM’s Michael Stipe again without see Nic Cage’s face appear before us. The sound of Jack Bruce singing falsetto in Cream will now recall the horrible old creep of family guy. The singer of Alt-J indeed sounds like that Adam Sandler’s childlike voice got millions talking. John Mulaney could, in fact, sing a verse from “Love Shack” and, most haunting of all, it really does look like Jerry Seinfeld is performing lead vocals on “Mr. The Good Side.”

We expect it to be while having fun. But maybe, just maybe, given what we know of the modern music industry‘s love of TikTok marketingsnipermike253 is actually a branch of the industry, determined to rock old Killers records by reminding us Seinfeld episodes.
