A cappella group called Straight No Chaser performed an endearing rendition of a classic tune. The men's unique performance greatly amused the large audience at the show. The video was also shared on YouTube.
The laughs begin not long into the show when one of the men mentions how they "choreographed this number" themselves. The group member warns the audience that it's going to be "blatantly obvious" in a few minutes. They then go on to do some hilarious stretching.
Two of the men begin the performance with unexpected lackluster singing. Another group member takes a quick look at his watch. The delighted audience doesn't yet realize the treat they're still in for. Follow us on Twitter for more @amomama_usa.
On the group's website, one of the members Randy Stine explains that "We take the music very seriously; we just don’t take ourselves too seriously.” This philosophy was reflected when a member closer to the center began the song, surprising the audience with a euphonious voice that viewers agree does the original much justice.
As they continued, the rest of the group starts performing an entertaining dance while snapping their fingers, bringing the crowd to fits of laughter while watching the slightly messy display. Other members jumped in at various points with more unexpected but brilliantly melodious a cappella singing. Towards the end, the main singer of the group even tries to get an audience member to join in.
The group came together at Indiana University over a decade ago. They attempt to put a fresh twist on "the modern pop landscape" using their fun and professional a cappella singing talents. They gave this performance while touring New Mexico.
The group's site notes,"If the phrase 'male a cappella group' conjures up an image of students in blue blazers, ties, and khakis singing traditional college songs on ivied campuses… think again. Straight No Chaser (SNC) are neither strait-laced nor straight-faced, but neither are they vaudeville-style kitsch."
The combination of dance, comedy, and amazing musical talent has propelled the group to success across the country, on television, and on the internet.
Earlier this June, another video showcasing one adorable little girl's quirky dance moves was posted to YouTube. In the viral video which you can read about and view here, the girl is joined by her brothers for a fun dance that takes elements from the popular Fortnite video game.
