Support the independent voice of Houston and help keep the future of Houston Press free.

Via our pals at the Bayou, we have found slam-dunk evidence that it is always a bad idea to participate in karaoke at your office Christmas party.

A clip of a Beaumont party includes what might be the world's worst rendition of "U Can't Touch This," and that is a very high bar indeed.

Highlights include white-girl dancing which should have included an extra-support sports bra. And the rare, rare occasions when the two singers actually sound somewhat like they've actually heard the song before.

The video, after the jump (if you're on our home page, otherwise it's obviously below).

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
