Today in awesome videos: A bad lip reading of a Michael Bublé hit yields your new summer jam, 'Russian Unicorn'

If you’ve ever wanted to hear adult contemporary crooner Michael Bublé sing lines like, “I need a woman with a Benz looking to lose it,” and “I’ma blast yo’ brains, talking full on sex,” look no further.

Thanks to the endlessly creative folks over at Bad Lip Reading, Bublé’s wholesome music video for his pop ditty “Haven’t Met You Yet” has been converted into an absurd thumper called “Russian Unicorn,” which is just as gleefully ridiculous as the title suggests, but a whole lot more catchy than it probably has any right to be.

Check out the video below:

And just for reference, here is the original:

“Russian Unicorn” kind of makes Michael looks like he has some swagger, right? Sounds like a jam ready to get cranked at the club—or your nearest Hamm and Buble fine dining establishment.

    The best part of this is when I go to watch the ‘original’ … y’know, a song by a Canadian artist … it’s not available for people in my country … y’know, CANADA.

    Their parody of Miley Cyrus’ Party in the USA called “Black Umbrella” is by far Bad Lip Reading’s best. This guy is a genius. All the songs are catchy.

    The music is good, yet fun and catchy, even with most of the the current dance pop hits. The lyrics are so funny. I’m thinking that Michael Buble is doing an Usher doing all that dancing in the video! Becaude he’s got his own moves going on in the video! It does sound a tad bit like late ’80s dance too–I thought I was hearing shades of Information Society’s What’s On Your Mind in some parts.

      I love selena and miley svrcie:ok,apparte che anche selena fa un sacco di beneficienza,e poi dici che miley e8 meglio di selena,e che quello che dici e8 la verite0,ma scs va bene dire che x te e8 meglio,xk mi sembra normale dal momento che sei una smiler,xf2 x le selenators e8 meglio selena,e nn e8 che solo xk tu preferisci miley vuol dire che deve x forza essere cosec,xk una selenators potrebbe risponderti allo stesso modo! i gusti sono gusti,quando lo capirete??? e poi nn e8 stata Selena-99 a mettere miley e sel a confronto anzi,a me risulta che sono sempre le smiley che le paragonano e inoltre insultano di continuo selena! noi selenators invece(fatta eccezzione x qualcuna) nn andiamo a criticare l’idolo degli altri!

    I am almost embarrassed by how many times I’ve watched this. Is it just me or does the video makes more sense with the new song?

  • Robin

    I have to echo the praise for this video…I think it’s the best BLR has done and it makes Michael Buble cooler than Justin Timberlake :D

  • Coley

    I am so addicted to this song. Love it! I also love that Buble thanked the BLR crew for making this. Classy.

  • Joseph F. McNulty

    The amazing thing is that the BLR parody versions (“Russian Unicorn” and “Black Umbrella”) are so much better as songs than the originals. I find it hard to believe that a single video guy in Texas did this. Perhaps it is easy to find “Rick Perry” impersonators in Texas, but Miley Cyrus, Snoop Dawg, and Michael Buble seamless impersonators? For example, in “Black Umbrella,” a song celebrating a particular king of marijuana (“We’re smoking the rightr stuff . . .”), not only is the voice of Miley Cyrus perfect (even in the spoken lyrics), but so is Snoop Dawg, who is added and does not even appear in the original. And what about the back-up singers. At one point, Miley Cyrus sings “Please help me down from this swing,” while swinging on a child’s chain swing, and the back-up singers echo her perfectly, “Please help me down , , ,” And this is a completely NEW song from HER original, the soporific “Party in the USA.” There is also a video called “Everybocy Poops,” based on the humorless “Black-Eyed Peas” number “Boom-Boom-Boom” (it really would do violence to the language to call it a “song”). Again, it is totally different AND MUCH BETTER. No matter what they say, I cannot believe that ONE GUY is producing video parodies of such genius and creativity, which are actually better videos than the originals.

    I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this song. i have learnt it off by heart, and think Michael himself should sing it. Michael can agree that the song is amazing.
