Guns N’ Roses’ ‘Sweet Child o’ Mine’ Gets a Vaudeville Makeover

YouTube: MrHuellHowser

Consider yourself warned, because watching a man in suspenders play a monster-sized polka contraption to the tune of Guns N’ Roses‘ ‘Sweet Child o’ Mine’ will forever haunt your dreams. Actually, its pretty damn cool — and when the visual and sonic elements come together, you’ll likely find yourself transfixed by the bizarre vaudevillian creation.

Let us break down the video for you. This piece is taken from the widely-seen YouTube clip, ‘New Joe Plays,’ where Joe Rinaudo shows off his prowess on the … ummm … piano-xylophone-percussive-goofy noise-making … uhhh … thing. It’s incredibly impressive, but someone should probably tell this guy that you can do the same thing with a cheap electronic keyboard.

Anyway, a brilliant idea was concocted by someone who watched the video, and somehow came to the conclusion that it would go perfectly with the Guns N’ Roses classic ‘Sweet Child o’ Mine.’ So, after a sonic journey into the brain of Axl Rose and the mindset of Disney World background music, an intriguing polka cover of ‘Sweet Child o’ Mine’ was synced up to Rinaudo’s performance, resulting in Internet gold.

Please enjoy this delightfully silly polka rendition of ‘Sweet Child o’ Mine.’
