The internet is an amazing tool. It brings resources and knowledge about everything to your fingertips. It also allows people like Jon Sudano to not only exist, but to flourish. Sudano, a would-be YouTube star, has only uploaded three videos to his page so far, but the guy’s surprisingly earnest cover of Evanescence’s “Bring Me To Life” has gone viral, racking up over 440,000 views since being first posted on Friday (14).
What elevates it is that that guy is singing Smashmouth’s biggest hit “All Star” over the mall-goth histrionics of Evanescence’s 2003 hit. We’re not sure that he’ll leave a lasting legacy on the internet, but Sudano’s cover is the best thing we’ve seen this week, and we’re including another of his three videos, in which he sings the same Shrek anthem over John Lennon’s “Imagine.” We salute you, Jon Sudano.
