WATCH: Here's An Epic Movie Supercut of Lionel Ritchie's 'Hello'
Ah, supercuts. Sometimes done well, too often not, the art of the pop culture-mashing video meme rarely achieves such simple brilliance as it does in this version of Lionel Richie's "Hello," as pieced together from scraps of movie dialogue here and there. It's like an alternate reality fever dream in which John Cusack's Being John Malkovich puppeteer, Elvis, Neytiri, Tippi Hedren, Gandhi, and Borat (to name a few of the folks immortalized herein) come together to record a cover of the soul-searching 1984 slow-jam.
Seriously -- if all supercuts were this good, we'd never get anything done as a people. Hello, it is this you're looking for! (groan)
"Hello" is credited to Matthijs Vlot, who also uploaded the inspired, breath-taking "ooh ahh" a few months ago.
Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day, everyone!
