Beyonce's Single Ladies covered by Pomplamoose

Beyonce's Single Ladies covered by Pomplamoose is a Youtube video cover of Beyoncé's hit Single Ladies.  I had seen this on Youtube but held off on it. I wasn't sure it was TOTI material, but then I saw it on Kottke, and it's gotten more than a million hits since... so why not. Looks like I missed a scoop. ANYWAY.

Pomplamoose describes it as,
"This cover is a VideoSong, a new medium with 2 rules:
1. What you see is what you hear (no lip-syncing for instruments or voice).
2. If you hear it, at some point you see it (no hidden sounds)."

Charming.  Deconstructs it, breaks it down, makes it look way simpler than it is. 

And now, obligatory comment:

YO Pomplamoose, Imma let you finish but... This is the best acoustic blues version ever. Enjoy!
