This guy’s Guitar Hero skills? They’re on point. His singing/humming skills? Maybe even better.

YouTubers that actually use games and movies in their videos are likely pretty familiar with the platform’s stance on copyright. If a license holder wants the content taken down, it’s taken down. Such was the case with “Bark at the Moon” by Ozzy Osborne, a track owned by CBS.

GuitarHeroFailure uploaded a 100% clear of the song on Guitar Hero, it was removed thanks to the audio so he hummed along and re-uploaded.

The result is a video that exploded in popularity. It’s been up for a week now, and it already has 1.8 million views.

He hums better than I play, so there’s that.
