Finally! Ke$ha's "Tik Tok" In American Sign Language!

You know what makes Rocks Off sad? The knowledge that the approximately one million Americans who are functionally deaf don't have someone expressing the absolute poetry of Ke$ha's "Tik Tok" to them in American Sign Language. Until now!

Sure, you can read a line like, "Boys tryin' to touch my junk, junk" on a lyric sheet, but without adding an element of performance and panache, it would just seem silly.

So thank you, Allyballybabe, for your contribution to the happiness of the hearing impaired. Be sure to check her out on YouTube as she continues her pop-song ASL project with other great hits like Taylor Swift's "Love Story" and Ozzy's "Dreamer."
