Welcome to the Gus Johnson channel, where the most average content comes to fizzle out.
Thanks for watching and sharing! Don't stab people. I'll see you later.

Ummæli

  • i figured i had to hop on this "you can call me al" meme quickly while it was still super topical. follow me on twitter @Gusbuckets for all the latest "you can call me al" news and content.

    • I have no clue what this is but I like it

    • Recreate this please ischats.info/fun/Y9CyemF6e52KnYg/v-deo

    • Tha captions tho...😂

    • @Vladimir Haljkevic same

    • I don't know if I like this new trend hopping direction you've been taking with your videos, Gus.

  • yo i think this video is cursed or something, i have that exact microphone right next to me, like no joke for real. Edit: if you dont believe me it says Konami on the front and its from rock band.

  • Lyrics: Hi HI there mom how you doing today? No i'm doing alright thanks for asking I appreciate it. Listen you know what i saw today mom I saw a man walk down the street and he had one of them ice cream cones You know the kind with the fudge tip and the chocolate inside I asked "Where you got that Ice cream cone" He told me "On Third Street" I got one it was good. You know who I saw after that? It was Ricky Hamilton from Third Grade. No No No not the one that showed me his penis on the playground, the other Ricky No i don't remember if he had a Boner Boner I don't even know if you can get those in third grade Anyway we had a couple exchanged words And then we went on our separate ways. We're here in the studio now doing a song mom so i gotta hang up So I love you very much sincerely you son Paul Simon Bye

  • This expalins everything!

  • 0:27 I feel bad for Gus, that day he never seen a playground the same...or Ricky

  • Hey there Al! Nice to meet chya

  • This one made me subscribe

  • I don't know, I think this is fake. See, "You Can Call Me Al" was written in 1986. Caller ID was invented in 1987 so how could Paul have known that the person on the other line was his mother when he answered?

  • What a classic. Very intelligent comedy

  • Lmao

  • Holy Hell that was hilarious at! ❤️🤣❤️

  • I'm going to cover this!

  • Turn on the captions

  • wahhhhhhhh

  • This is perfection

  • So accurate... I don't find this kind of stuff amusing anymore

  • Get out my recommended Gus. Every day I end up here

  • For anyone lazy people, here's the real lyrics. A man walks down the street He says, "Why am I soft in the middle, now? Why am I soft in the middle? The rest of my life is so hard I need a photo-opportunity I want a shot at redemption Don't want to end up a cartoon In a cartoon graveyard" Bonedigger, Bonedigger Dogs in the moonlight Far away in my well-lit door Mr. Beerbelly, Beerbelly Get these mutts away from me You know, I don't find this stuff amusing anymore If you'll be my bodyguard I can be your long lost pal I can call you Betty And Betty, when you call me, you can call me Al A man walks down the street He says, "Why am I short of attention? Got a short little span of attention And, whoa, my nights are so long Where's my wife and family? What if I die here? Who'll be my role model Now that my role model is gone, gone?" He ducked back down the alley With some roly-poly little bat-faced girl All along, along There were incidents and accidents There were hints and allegations If you'll be my bodyguard I can be your long lost pal I can call you Betty And Betty, when you call me, you can call me Al Call me Al A man walks down the street It's a street in a strange world Maybe it's the third world Maybe it's his first time around Doesn't speak the language He holds no currency He is a foreign man He is surrounded by the sound, the sound Cattle in the marketplace Scatterings and orphanages He looks around, around He sees angels in the architecture Spinning in infinity He says, "Amen and Hallelujah!" If you'll be my bodyguard I can be your long lost pal I can call you Betty And Betty, when you call me, you can call me Al Call me Na na na na, na na na na Na na na na, na na na-na na-na Na na na na, na-na na-na na na Na na na na, na na na na If you'll be my bodyguard I can call you Betty If you'll be my bodyguard I can call you Betty If you'll be my bodyguard

  • Can I get the lyrics?

  • chords?

  • good song, but you're a little young to know that song

    • I hate when people say this shit

  • I found it, I think this is the soonest video after the Cold Ones episode

  • I love that song. It is basically the story of a man who feels like he missed out and only wanted a second chance.

  • idk why but the ending hits so hard lmao

  • Wow

  • This is just a sun kil moon song

  • My guy said "third GRADE"

  • Wow this was shit. Human shit. You might as well have filmed an actual shit coming out of someone.

  • First thing I thought of was "Angels in the Outfield." "Just call me AL"

  • bOner Boner

  • Mom would think you're weird.

  • This is stupid. The lyrics he came up with in his phone call make way more sense than the actual song, "Call Me Al"

  • 🤣

  • The original song was way better ischats.info/fun/lLSwZahqiJeOlIg/v-deo

  • IS this what your bedroom used to look like all the time?

  • This is every. Single. Paul. Simon. Song.

  • I've watched this about 30 times now and keep coming back to it.

  • Who could dislike this masterpiece?

  • Thank God for Garfunkel

  • One of my all time favorite videos on ISchats. Half the clicks must be from me.

  • I sent this to my mom

  • Man listening to this without Charles Cornell’s piano cover sounds almost as naked as ricky

  • I'm so used to the Charles Cornell video, I completely forgot there isn't any music in this

  • Sub to me you won’t

  • Idiot.

  • These are better lyrics than the actual lyrics 😂🤣🤣

  • at times he sounds like Nate Ruess from 'Fun.' and then at time he does sounds like Paul Simon.

  • And you can call me Betty

  • Watching this after the latest vid

  • And yet He is my favorite singer

  • the phone enhanced the whole thing xD

  • the thing is these lyrics aren’t nearly as random/ ridiculous as the actual ones

  • Hahahahahah I love this channel!!!!!!!

  • INSTANT SUB

  • You look like Lewis Capaldi

  • I like to imagine gus starting w/ the “Boner, Boner” lyric and working back from there for the rest of the lyrics.

  • Can't believe Gus stole my sound panel formation smh

  • Fuck you dude I challenge you to a Simon Soundalike-off

  • Boner. Boner.

  • so much better than the song 🤣🤣

  • PLEASE TURN ON CAPTIONS!!!! this has been a psa

  • hilarious video, but Paul Simon is legitimately a lyrical genius. Love the entire Graceland album so much.

  • So I frequent karaoke bars, and "Strawberry Wine" is sort of a regular request. Whenever I'm with friends, if that song is on, I'll just start chatting up whomever and use the lines from the song and see how far I can go with it till they get it. Record stands at about 35 seconds. It's a start.

  • And then Chevy walked in the studio because he got the wrong door

  • Dumb

  • B O N E R, B O N E R

  • Omg this is brilliant

  • Hopefully I can get this garbage off of my feed. Minute of my life etc...

  • I don’t know why this is just now showing up in my suggested (June 23, 2020) but good god this is a blessing

  • Chevy Chase looks great these days

  • you can get boners in the 3rd grade tho

  • I can't un-hear the Charles Cornell version 😂😂

  • Tha captions tho...😂

  • Still makes me laugh. Great job Gub

  • I was just looking up this song a minute ago 😂

  • Hahahaha! Truth!

  • This is the Sun Kil Moon method

  • Nah, he just appropriated African pop music:p

  • I’m here from Charles Cornell lol

  • noIdon'trememberifhehada *booooner boooner*

  • I love your work Paul Simon! 🤩

  • I can only hear charles cornells version of this now

  • 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

  • Me and Ricky Hamilton down by the schoolyard

  • I love this song and didn't realize it was in vogue for a minute there. Love this.

  • this might be the randomest joke i've seen in a very long time

  • Sun Kil Moon

  • I've already watched this, but then yt recommended the video of Charles Cornell playing to it and I watched and then yt recommended this again, so here I am watching it a third time.

  • I love this song

  • This video haunts me. I can't stop thinking about it. It's probably my favourite skit ever.

  • It's weird, but I'm Jewish and when Jews pray they don't just read the words they sing the words, and low key that is exactly how they song it

    • This is why they can seem awkward, repetitive and frankly boring when simply read or spoken. Also why they are hard to translate. That's not how they were meant to be transmitted.

    • It's common to all Abrahamic religions. Catholic priests traditionally sung mass in Latin. Muslim calls to prayer are sung quran verses. Many Bible and Quran verses typically have this rhythm and cadence that evokes poetry and music (which in the Ancient Greek and Semitic worlds were inseparable). Remember for most of their history, the majority of believers were illiterate. The best way to make religious texts memorable and "catchy" were to infuse them with musicality.

    • @Len Schiff Debbie Friedman didn't even write prayers, she wrote Jewish folk sings, yet before the Torah Service, we sing one of her songs at my Synagogue for some reason.

    • Yeah, I'm Jewish too and when first heard that song, that's what I thought

    • Len Schiff I hate both approaches so I compromise by never going to synagogue ☺️

  • Meme song! Lol!

  • Boner Boner

  • There’s a meme round this song? I love that song 😂

  • Boner, boner

  • I love how he broke into tailosives studio for this

  • the captions r v good

  • charles cornell brought me here

  • You sir, have earned a subscription.

  • Paul Simon's still alive and has a Twitter quick someone show him
