Thom Yorke Dancing to 'Single Ladies' -- Funniest (Radiohead) Video Ever

Posted By on Fri, Feb 18, 2011 at 3:00 PM

By now you've seen the clip for "Lotus Flower," off Radiohead's just-released King of Limbs. (A first take here.) And you've probably been unsettled by the apparent disparity between what a madly writhing Yorke seems to hear in his head -- when he dances through the entire video -- and what you hear in this new Radiohead song. Well, friends, the above video clears it up. Yorke was listening to Beyonce's "Single Ladies" the whole time.  Or at least, it's hilarious to think so.

Note: If you don't get why this is funny (a condition we frankly can't imagine) you really need to watch the original video, which is after the jump.

And here's the original, for purposes of sober comparison.
