in crazy shit off the top of my head

Caraoke: Let’s fucking do this

(if you want to hear the original song, listen here)

A friend recently confessed he was really into karaoke and before he could ask I had to decline ever doing something as crazy as singing in public. I'm crippled with embarrassment whenever I have to dance or sing (or do anything kooky) in public, so karaoke is out, but I realized I actually like to sing when I'm alone and no one is watching.

Then I thought about American Idol and reality shows and singing alone and then it hit me: people sing in cars all the time! Karaoke in cars = Caraoke! We have the technology: hidden cameras, microphones, bluetooth audio, and OnStar-type microphones in many cars. Loved ones that suspect you're a private car singer can sign you up (without your knowledge :) and record you singing on the way to work. Each week clips of people singing are played, the person singing is contacted and surprised (and sometimes incensed with anger, hey it makes for great TV) and the best singer wins something each week.

Why isn't this an actual show? Hollywood, make this hidden camera singing show happen already.

  1. Yay! It warms my heart that someone actually did this. I can’t believe I never heard of it (though that catch-phrase repeated on the show sounds incredibly stupid).

  2. The only way I can sing in public (or dance, for that matter) is with the assistance of hard alcohol, but I always have a great time every time I do. You might want to try one of those private karaoke rooms, like in Lost in Translation.
