Dazed & Confused and Bemused & Enthused

In what skirts dangerously close to destroying the film I sometimes cite as my favourite one ever, some dangerous young rapper has chosen to recount the entire plot of Dazed and Confused in under two minutes... in rap form.

Ordinarily that would be one culture clash too far for me, but god damn it, it works a treat. Perhaps it's the use of Low Rider as the backing track, or the freeze framed snap shots taken from the film; or maybe it's just the impressive feat of describing a coherent and entertaining plot synopsis at breakneck speed. I do absolutely love Dazed and Confused, and don't think it gets shown enough appreciation these days, so it's nice to see it being held in some reverence.

If you're impressed by the rapping in the video, this is the work of YouTube user Mac Lethal, and I recommend checking out his YouTube page to see what else he can do.
