A friend of mine once said that YouTube is there for two things: videos of cats and for stupid people to document their stupidity.
The newest viral craze is “The Knife Game Song” and seems to be taking hold faster than the Harlem Shake! Note, the faint of heart may want to skip the video and move straight on.
The original video was uploaded by a Rusty Cage, who is also credited with writing the song and therefore as the creator and instigator of the viral “Knife Game Song”. The game involves a hand spread out on a wood surface while the participant tries to land the knife in between the outstretched fingers without hitting them, while singing the “Knife Game Song”. The lyrics of the song are as follows:
Oh, I have all my fingers, the knife goes chop chop chop!
If I miss the spaces in between, my fingers will come off,
and if I hit my fingers, the blood will soon come out!
But all the same, I play this game, cause that’s what it’s all about!
Oh, CHOP CHOP CHOP CHOP CHOP CHOP CHOP
I’m picking up the speed and if I hit my fingers then my hand will start to bleed!
I can’t help but think that it is a challenge that needs attempting but my love of my fingers and fear of blood is sure to keep me away from this one. What do you think?
