Video of the Week: When a Costumed Person Destroys The Drums At Children’s Music Concert

Or, as variously described in the viewer comments:

When you’re a death metal drummer, but it’s your little brother’s birthday party.

When you get a PHD in food science but end up working at your local McDonalds

“No matter how hard I try to run from my past, I can’t escape what I truly am.”

This is like hiring Gordon ramsay to make you a slice of toast.

“This suit is not to protect me, but to limit my power”

I can just feel his frustration. Every stroke is harder and angrier than the last. “Is this what my life has come to? All those drum lessons. All those dreams of being a rock god, reduced to… this?”

Plot twist: the cameras turns to the crowd of kindergarteners slam dancing

Teacher: Does anyone here play an instrument? The quiet kid:

Nah, this guy just saw his crush walk into the concert

That drum must had smoked a pack of cigarettes after that

That moment when she says she wants you to dress up in something weird so you can come over and smash…but you misunderstand….

This is like hiring Eminem to sing you a bed time story

When your metal band isn’t making enough money…

When u play the tutorial after finishing the game

Plot twist: He’s not wearing a costume.

This guy had a bowl of nails for breakfast without any milk

David Letterman Really Likes Drums

by Dave Shumka

David Letterman is really into drums. There’s a thing he sometimes does after a band plays on his show: he walks up to the drummer, compliments them on their drums and asks if they’re rentals. We noticed it happening often enough that we combed YouTube for a few dozen instances and created this supercut of Letterman talking to drummers. We also threw in the occasional cellist and harmonium player for good measure.

During our research, we learned a few things:

• David Letterman is pretty much the most charming man in the world.

• Lots of drummers rent their drums to appear on The Late Show.

• Singers tend to look uncomfortable when attention is being paid to a drummer.

• Not surprisingly, Letterman himself plays drums.
