Way back in the ’90s when Bill O’Reilly was the host of Inside Edition, he had a bit of a freakout. Anyone that listens to Howard Stern or swaps VHS tapes has heard his “fuck it, we’ll do it live!” rant, because what’s funnier than a seasoned news or radio announcer, known for their calming tones, losing their shit? The answer is a seasoned news announcer losing their shit with a bassist playing over it.
MonoNeon, a pretty awesome bassist, first played bass over his rant, and while it’s not as amazing as this guy playing over a sobbing Japanese politician, it’s still phenomenally well-done. Then after the rant is over, he takes the “we’ll do it live” part and plays a groove over it. Given that O’Reilly was just fired from Fox over multiple incidents of sexual harrassment, he deserves to be make fun of a lot, and dusting off a classic clip and funking it up is a pretty awesome fun and timely thing to do.
