A few years ago now, a 7-foot-8-inch clown named Puddles Pity Party went viral after he collaborated with Postmodern Jukebox for a cover of Lorde’s “Royals.” Aside from his unusual appearance, the video also showed off his surprisingly strong and smooth voice that nobody expected to hear coming out of that body. They’ve since joined forces again, on a cover of Tears for Fears’ “Mad World” and again just yesterday for a doo-wop ballad rendition of Blink-182’s “All The Small Things” (via Laughing Squid).
As you’d expect, Puddles Pity Party is an enigmatic figure, and in 2014, Grantland published an engaging story about trying to track down the mysterious clown that’s worth reading if you want some insightful background on one of the internet’s oddest singers. Otherwise, revisit the classic “Royals” cover below, and let us know in the comments what your favorite Postmodern Jukebox cover is.
