It’s official. We have reached Peak Mash-Up. After years – no, decades – of internet ‘wizards’ smashing together two completely different songs for a few minutes of sweet comedic relief, someone has come along with something that is so perfectly brilliant and stupid, there’s no point carrying on.
We could go into massive chin-stroking detail about how the juxtaposition of Corey Taylor’s vein-bulging miffed-ness with Barney’s crazed jauntiness is a meta-commentary on the division of society today.
But we won’t. Instead, we’ll just point in the direction of 45 seconds of e-number-fuelled exhilaration featuring one of the world’s most beloved cartoon characters. And Barney The Dinosaur.
Now you’ll just have to excuse us. We’re just going to turn off the internet, cos we think we’ve completed it.
