WARNING: You can never unsee this slightly NSFW video once watched. We've included the GIF above to give a small preview of what you're about to engage in ...
When former Disney starlet (and dark horse contender for title of Queen of Pop) Miley Cyrus released the video for her song “Wrecking Ball”, reception was very mixed.
The song was undeniably captivating and some of the artistic decisions were reasonably interesting, but one couldn’t help but worry for Ms. Cyrus’ health as she drew a drywall dust-coated sledgehammer to her lips.
None of it, however, could have ever prepared us for YouTube comedian Steve Kardynal’s just uploaded Chatroulette parody of the song above.
In the video, Kardynal, fully devoted to his craft, writhes seductively on a red sofa while emoting to the camera emotions of overwhelming pain, loss, and quite possibly chill: He, too, is clad only in a tank top and briefs before he strips bare.
The video is not for the faint of heart or those prone to vicarious embarrassment, but once you press play it’s impossible to look away.
Kardynal is widely known for his risqué parodies and Chatroulette fake outs on YouTube. And, notably, his version of "Wrecking Ball" currently has significantly higher like-to-dislike ratio than Cyrus’: your move, Miley.
