Miley Cyrus’ “Wrecking Ball” With No Music Is Weird As Hell


Say, how would you like to watch about 2 minutes of next-to-nude sensual gyrating and wanton, consequence-free destruction? That might be overselling it a bit; put your hands down. Let’s try again: how would you like to watch a music video with no music? Yeah, that’s more like it.

Okay, upon further review, and by the author’s own admission, removing the melody and lyrics from a popular music video is apparently not an original idea. (Generally, a good rule of thumb is that if CollegeHumor has done it, it’s not an original idea.)

Still, we’ve never seen it, and unless you make a habit of searching YouTube for “NO MUSIC SOUND DESIGN”, you probably haven’t either. Maybe you do search for wrecking ball stuff pretty regularly, though, trying to find one destroying an iPhone 6s, in which case you might be familiar.

Either way, it’s hard to forget the cartoonish “bleaughghg” noise the dubbed Cyrus makes while kissing a sledgehammer. And as far as we’re concerned, “Wanda the thick clown” will forever be the canonical “Wrecking Ball” lyrics.
