All I hear is a bad song.

In all seriousness, I only hear those alternate 'lyrics' if I read them while the chorus is playing. It's like those backwards subliminal message recordings - I wouldn't hear things like 'hello I am Satan and I am in this Led Zeppelin song, isn't that nice' unless I was looking at the words while the song was playing.

I know, but the opportunity to belittle the song was too great.

This brings back bad memories from the 90s...I remember when this first hit the radios and MTV, along with the other crap from 1999.

They're insane.

My favourite mis-hearing of those lyrics is "I'm blue, I'm in need of a guy".

I still don't understand how that became such a big hit.

I love the high quality special effects of the video though.
