Yesterday evening, on the way home over London Bridge in rush hour, listening to my iPod, I was overwhelmed by the urge to flip open my phone and record this for the VlogDeathmath.com Drunk Underwear Karaoke Challenge.
It’s not for the win, just something silly I did in one shot last night to get the ball rolling, because nobody else had posted on yet. And to show people that they don’t need to get too freaked out by any issues of quality, production values, nakedness or anything else. You just need to cut loose.
So it’s not on the scale of Anarchy in the UK, but it was fun to do anyway.
The rules of the latest Deathmatch are to use any or all of the words Drunk Underwear Karaoke as a basis for your video.
I wasn’t drunk, or in my underwear (i was tempted) but yesterday was my last day of work before a month-long holiday in Canada, so I *was* totally lightheaded with joy. Or maybe it was that I’d lost my wallet and hadn’t eaten anything all day.
Turns out that the challenge was designed to attract non-videobloggers to the Pioneer Two Boots movie theater in New York where these entries will be screened on 11 August. If I’d known it was going to be shown to an audience on a big screen when I recorded it, I would have done it at twice the resolution. And I would have done it in my underwear. And I definitely would have done it drunk.
So – videobloggers – come and join the party. You’ll get your videos shown on a big screen in New York. What are you waiting for? Get drunk, get naked, get down…

I love the fact that you’re walking down the road singing quite loudly at your phone and only about 5 people turn around to see wtf you’re doing. Aint London such a great friendly place.
I’m making a deep bow. Respect.
What a man! what a fine species! It’s when i see you singing shirley bassey walking across London bridge with your hair blowin in the wind that i remember why i married you…Other men simply can’t compare.
Kate’s right. No other man compares to Rupert! Applause!
Someday I’m going to London Bridge (we have one here in Arizona you know – we bought the one you lot had from 1831 to 1962, check it out: http://www.roadtripamerica.com/places/havasu.htm) and sing at my own phone as a tribute to the incomparable Rupert Howe.
I’m very impressed that a) you actually know all the words to that song (I never really paid attention to the lyrics before) and too you never took your eyes off the camera to navigate where you were walking. Appropriately, people got out of YOUR way, as they should.
@cheryl – I’ve been to the Arizona London Bridge! And to Stonehenge 2, located in Hunt, Texas!
Unfortunately, this is not the only Bond theme that I know all the words to. By any means.
I know about London Bridge… and I *want* to see you make a video there, Cheryl.
And I’ve been to another Stonehenge on the Washington State/Oregon border near Mount Hood. Totally remote, totally bizarre.
You sir…are insane.
Pleasantly insane! Awesomely insane! Wonderfully insane!
The fact that you can walk around doing that is what every other person who does this should strive for. Carefree and without abandon. I envy you.
Lea and I sat here watching together and damn near died laughing with delight!
I think my most favorite part was when you switched seamlessly to a falsetto without even missing a step. You are truly a man of talent. Bravo!
That was better than Anarchy in the UK, better I tell you. You make me laugh Mr Howe. I can only imagine how that will come across on a big screen.
Well that was quite thhe most funny walk over london Bridge, I could hardly watch for laughing. You are the most unusual, hilarious, crazy, uninhibited (I used tohink I was uninhibited but No just a tiny bit free spirited compared with you) It always entertains me to obsserve how people tend to ignore crazyness. Little do they know thay have been in the presence of a genius. Love to you my crazy son.We all know why kate loves you and thats why we all love her.
