It's a choice they're making... just maybe not a very good one

Oh inscrutable Japanese TV, how I love you so! This version of "We Are The World" with an all-Japanese cast impersonating the various members that comprised the bombast-fest that was USA for Africa is pure small-screen gold.

The faux-Cyndi Lauper nails it and the imitation Bruce really pours his heart out, even if he can't quite hit the notes. The Billy Joel is a little disturbing, not so much because of the singing, but more due to the fact that his sparse, taped-on pseudo-beard makes him look less like The Piano Man and more like The Geico Caveman. The less said about Fake Stevie Wonder the better. (via Monkeys For Helping)
