Lance Armstrong Is Super Creep in Perfect Rendition of Radiohead's Classic

Gabe ZaldivarPop Culture Lead WriterJanuary 28, 2013

Lance Armstrong kind of, sort of sang the classic Radiohead song "Creep." It was also kind of, sort of not safe for work. 

The famed bicyclist's image has changed so dramatically that a video showing him speaking the lyrics to the song "Creep" actually works. 

In fact, it's perfect. 

Here is the video, spotted by Deadspin, with some NSFW language. Sort of. 

I will second what Tom Ley of Deadspin writes—the video is a weird and bizarre collection of edits that, for lack of a better word, is creepy. 

Any of you who went through the horror and torment of adolescence will recall the Radiohead masterpiece from the early 90s, which was sort of the theme song for awkward teenagers worldwide. 

The song now has new meaning as the fallen athlete "sings" the song while Oprah Winfrey asks, "What the hell are you doing here?"

Come for the awkward looks peppered throughout the video, but stay for the haunting look given by Armstrong when he finishes by saying, "I don't belong here."

I have been looking for the correct term to encapsulate the Lance Armstrong ordeal. It seems perfectly creepy will do just fine.
