If it's intentional comedy, I've never seen a more subtle example!

That one is subtle, but some of their other tracks aren't:

I wasn't sure at first either, but it definitely looks like they're taking the piss. It takes talent to play your instruments deliberately badly and to make your song sound that extra special type of chaotic. Reminds me of the amusingly dreadful cover versions by Harry Riddick, a very... interesting chap my mates were hanging around with/playing gigs with a few years ago.

This reminds me of the best cover of the Pink Panther theme.

I had trouble typing this post because I'm chuckling too much at that comment.

Fuck it, might as well have some more. Another mate of mine from Spain got a bit internet-famous a few years back for this "flute drop" stuff:

It gets pretty old pretty quick but it certainly had a lot of people either annoyed or cracking up laughing, both of which are great reactions.

I like DJ Detweiler's stuff a lot, and that "Weird Flex" show he does is decent.

They paid for a sponsored post and it's still only on 49 views? Poor chap.

Ah it’s good to know he still has fans! He’s one of those people who are enviably prolific and creative with making endlessly daft stuff. A lot like Henry Shitmat in that regard, so it came as no surprise when they made stuff together!
