I Threw a Wish in the Well Don't Ask Me I'll Never Tell I Threw a Wish

It's not new, but it's maybe the opposite of the new Bowie: "Call Me Maybe Acapella 147 Times Exponentially Layered." The song costs a dollar and would be right at home on a makeout mixtape, or in a gift basket to space.

In space, no one can hear you unwrap cellophane.


That was great. Thanks for posting@j

Every time I see a well all I can think of is, "Down here, it's our time. It's our time down here."


@fondue with cheddar See, I think of "We're sending our love down the well!"

@area@twitter AAAHH that's a good one!

I'm Right on Top of that, Rose

@fondue with cheddar I've been on a Batman kick lately (Dark Knight style, yo), so when I see a well, all I think of is, "Bruce. Why do we fall?"


@area@twitter "There's a hole in my heart as big as a well/For that poor little boy who's stuck halfway to Hell"

@I'm Right on Top of that, Rose Completely unrelated story: when the Michael Keaton one came out I was babysitting a little four-year-old boy. He was tiny for his age and super adorable. He'd seen the commercial for the movie, and sometimes would randomly grab your shirt, put his face an inch away from yours, and say, "I'm Batman," à la this scene. It was The Cutest Thing.


@iceberg "We can't get him out, so we'll do the next best thing/ we'll go on TV and sing, sing, siiiiiiiing."



This isn't the first time the Hairpin has given me chills with a still from "The Ring." I'll just be over here checking that my nose isn't bleeding.


Image from The Ring?


Exponentially Layered Acapella?



This is far more distressing than I expected.

@Apocalypstick I made it all the way to 1:12 before I began to actively want to throw up.


Why is it 147?

Two interesting things are that a) it is still identifiable until very late in the song b) you can't tell that it's a capella after the first couple of layers.
