Bad Lip Reading wins ‘American Idol’

Bad Lip Reading presents, in its ongoing project to destabilize language, meaning, and somatic signification, American Idol—or, in Bad Lip Reading parlance, The Sing-Song Contest of America.

The ultimate winner of the season—Caleb Johnson, crowned Wednesday night—gets plenty of play, thanks in no small part to his exaggerated expressions and extended air time.

But ultimately? It’s the cake, man. Oh my gosh.
