Rock on, dude.
The YouTube hitmakers at Ten Second Songs are back with a seasonal favorite. Log-jamming 23 different pop impersonations into five minutes of Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” is a tall order—Port Chester, N.Y. musician Anthony Vincent is up for the assignment.
Vincent is a journeyman rocker that’s found a second professional life as a YouTube musician. In March, he gave the same treatment to Katy Perry’s “Dark Horse,” and 12 million views later he’s a professional that writes corporate jingles and personalized songs.
You can dismiss his craft, his eyebrow piercing, or his circa Soundgarden mane—but I’ll always endorse the welding of a nerve-pinching idea coupled with unsinkable musical talent.
