A nice karaoke night is a tried-and-true way to blow off some steam. The wonderful thing about karaoke? Anyone can do it. Even the primary skill you “need” to do karaoke — singing — is actually totally optional.
Turns out, you can even do karaoke if you are a bottle of syrup. What’s more, people will love it, which is what Jake Guthrie found out when he tweeted a video of an IHOP syrup bottle chorus “lip-syncing” (spout-syncing?) to “Bohemian Rhapsody.”
Guthrie, who is a student at West Virginia University in Morgantown, West Virginia, uploaded the video on October 7. Since then, it’s been viewed over 1.5 million times. Does this speak to the internet’s love for syrup? Its fondness for Queen? Its shockingly consistent ability to latch onto goofy, nonsensical content in an effort to stave off death?
Whatever! I’ll take it. In fact, I now believe that all syrup containers should do karaoke, which is lucky for me because syrup karaoke has become a bonafide genre.
Anyway, does anyone want to go to IHOP?
