Video of the Week: Hooray for Earth cover Justin Timberlake's "My Love"

VIDEO: Hooray for Earth cover Justin Timberlake's "My Love"

Mp3 of the week will not be seen today, so that we can bring you something that's more fun than compressed audio. Namely: compressed video!

There's no shortage of Justin Timberlake covers in the world, but we're partial to this reimagining of "My Love" by Boston's HOORAY FOR EARTH, who filmed this live version during a sweat-soaked late-night barbecue at Austin's South by Southwest. Frontman Noel Heroux gets extra credit for programming those trance synth patches instead of sampling them, and the group's trademark baritone guitar crunch elevates this to Local-H-covering-"Toxic"-grade goodness.

ADDENDUM: We forgot to mention that the dude howling the breakdown is Ted from Age Rings. And also, HFE chimes in with this to their email list: "Please do not take this video seriously!" No problem.
