Though Weezer’s cover of Toto‘s hit song “ Africa” has proved to be this summer’s surprise radio hit, we do have to ask: really, how hard is it for one musician to sing a song using their normal voice? Not to take a lot away from Rivers Cuomo, but that’s something a hundred men or more could also do. As sure as Kilimanjaro rises like Olympus above the Serengeti, it would be much harder to drag us away from this rendition featuring one of our favorite impressionists singing the whole of “Africa” as 29 different cartoon characters!
Brock Baker, who previously performed Smash Mouth’s “All Star” as 24 animated figures, is back to take on another popular song everyone (sincerely) loves. He takes on the task as iconic, instantly recognizable characters like Goofy, Krusty the Klown, or Mr. Krabs, as well as less famous figures like The Monarch from Venture Brothers, the old Looney Tunes character Pete Puma, and everyone from Ed, Edd n Eddy. If you close your eyes you wouldn’t be able to guess this is just one guy doing so many spot-on impressions. (Though you should keep your eyes open, because Baker’s facial expressions are a big part of the fun.)
It’s always incredible hearing just how many voices he can do, but I would have been happy if this entire song were sung by Brak. Which one of his many voices do you think is his best impression? Bless the comments down below with your favorite.
