Sports Announcer Performs The Killers' 'Mr. Brightside' Like He's Calling A Game
The Killers will perform at the 2017 Australian Football League finals, but sports commentator Gerard Whateley is ready to step in at a moment's notice if something happens and they're not able to play. In a recent video, Whateley performed Mr. Brightside in the style of a sports announcer. The cover looks like it could potentially become a crossover hit:
The performance is inspiring listeners:
Like any great musician, Whateley's timing was absolutely perfect:
Only a master could perform so well:
Cancel the finals!
If his goal was to get people excited, he succeeded!
Perhaps Wateley should hit the field...
People were truly stunned. Hopefully this sense of wonder carries over into the AFL finals!
