Karaoke for the deaf

I haven’t tried this yet, but I believe it must be extremely funny! In this video, Johann Lippowitz mimes Oasis’ “Don’t Look Back in Anger” song on the BBC’s Comedy Shuffle. He basically mimes the whole song in a very peculiar way. So, after showing this video to your students, you could divide them in groups and give out lyrics of different songs for them to mime. I think it could be used in any level, depending on the song. Do you think it would work? Do you have any suggestions of songs we could ask them to mime?

Here`s the video:

    I remember seeing someone in Birmingham about 15 years ago, miming to an Elton John song. Absolutely brilliant. He made several appearances in clubs in the Midlands and London. When people knew he was going to be there the place was packed out. Elton John himself went along once to see him and couldn’t stop laughing all evening. He really appreciated what he was doing. Don’t know where he is now, but I reckon this guy you mention, who also dod ‘Torn’ with Natalie Imbruglia, copied his idea.
