However you say it, it sucks:
Yes, that is indeed Nickelback doing a cover of the Flock of Seagulls song “I Ran (So Far Away).” I think if you go to Google and type in “things that suck” this video comes up as the first three hits. Okay, it doesn’t, but it goddamn should.
And yet… I’ve watched that thing like four times now. I can’t stop watching it. I’d say it’s like a train wreck, you have to look even if you don’t want to–except, it’s not like that at all. I kind of like the singer’s voice (it’s not the usual Nickelback asshole, it’s one of the other dudes in the band singing) and they actually make the song groove OH FUCK I THINK I LIKE SOMETHING NICKELBACK DID! ALSO FLOCK OF SEAGULLS! AHH!! I AM SCARRED FOR LIFE!
