Because the internet is a tilt-a-whirl that never stops spinning no matter how much people puke, this is a surprisingly well made video of Gollum deepfaked to perform Prince’s ‘Nothing Compares 2 U’, as made famous by Sinéad O’Connor’s 1990 cover. The music video even follows O’Connor’s. Gollum’s new lyrics, to reflect his own personal experience:
Nothing can stop these tears from falling
Tell me precious, where did we go wrong
We can put our hands around the neck of every Hobbit we see
But they only remind us of you
And we got tortured by the dark lord
But guess what we told him
Guess what we told him precious
We screamed “SHIRE” and “Baggins”
Then we cried and cursed and gurgled
Like we do, but he’s a fool
Because nothing compares, nothing compares
To you my precious.
The internet, am I right? “What about it?” Complete shithole. Except for this — this is a masterpiece that belongs in a museum. They should just knock the Mona Lisa off the wall with a long pole and project this music video in its place.
Keep going for the video, as well as Sinéad’s for reference. Should you synchronize them and play them at the exact same time like I just did? *covering ears while they bleed* I can’t recommend it enough.
