Video of the Day: A Capella Cover of Scary Monsters & Nice Sprites by Skrillex

As many of you know, my latest musical obsession is Dubstep. Imagine my surprise when I realized that many talented people are recording A Capella versions, a la Mike Thompkins, of songs from this new, wildly popular music genre. Like me (if you've ever heard Dubstep before), you probably thought it impossible to be able to make sounds like that using only your voice! Well, not only can Aaron do it, he sounds amazing! If you're not familiar with the song, you can play Aaron's cover and the original song side by side here. You won't believe how close his version sounds to the original!

Aaron knows that some of his facial expression are "amusing". He says, "If you HATE them then you never had a childhood". He also admits, "some sounds are ridiculous, but that's as close as I could get!". But get past all that, and what you'll have left is a clever, unique, fantastically talented guy who, in my opinion, likely has a very successful musical career ahead of him.

Aaron's sister Astrid, who is also a talented singer, is featured in a couple of his videos, which you can see here.
