"The Mother of All Funk Chords"

This here is awesome.

Someone named "Kutiman" collected a whole bunch of amateur Youtube videos of people goofing off on musical instruments. Then he remixed them all and spliced them into an actual song to make it look like they're all performing together. Once the theremins kick in and the Asian schoolkids start dancing, well, it's infectious.

Part of what's cool and spooky about the video to me is how well it works as a metaphor for communication on the Internet. Each of these folks was just doing their own thing, and yet--without their even knowing it--somehow they were also part of a gigantic funk jam. Ah, Internets.
