“WTF?! I wanted an iPad. WTF?! I wanted a car.” So begins the latest hit YouTube song from Jonathan Mann, who has been writing, recording, producing and uploading a song (and a video) every day for more than 1000 days. The song’s lyrics are made up of disgruntled tweets from people who are pissed off that they didn’t get an iPhone, iPad or car for Christmas. The video has gone viral over the last couple of days, racking up over 200,000 views so far.
‘WTF?! I Wanted An iPhone!!! Song’ is Jonathan’s 1089th consecutive song. You can find out more about his Song-A-Day project on his website.
Some of the tweets that make up the song’s lyrics and are displayed in the video are completely ridiculous. The list, according to Mashable, was compiled by comedy writer John Hendren (@fart) who decided to get into the holiday spirit by retweeting the most spoiled messages he found about people who wanted, but didn’t get, iPhones, iPads and cars. It may make you think twice before you tweet a ridiculously spoiled complaint in the future.
Note: The lyrics to the song may be NSFW – apparently spoiled and disgruntled holiday tweeters also have potty mouths.
