House of the Rising XOOM [Fan-Made Video]

May 1, 2011

There comes a time in every contest's life where an entry stands out so hard that I've GOT to post it up in the main feed. Here at Android Community we've got a XOOM giveaway going on where you enter by "liking" us on Facebook and posting on the wall. Each entry is considered equal, a random contest with random winners chosen, but this did not stop Android Community fan Jan Jorgensen from writing an epic re-telling of the House of the Rising Sun. Behold a masterpiece of Android fandom!

The lyrics to this song are listed below, but not before a bit of text from Jorgenson himself right about now. Jorgensen! Fantastic effort, my man!

You know, just writing a comment didn't feel like enough to express the generosity of Android Community and Nvidia. So I present (very embarrassed, I might add), "House of the Rising Xoom." Set to the tune of House of the Rising Sun. Forgive the sound/video/singing/playing quality. I am a hobbyist at best.

-Jan Jordensen

And the lyrics run thusly:

There is a site up on the web
Android Community
It is perfect for Android fans
And God, I know, that's me

The only thing you need for speed
Is Nvidia Tegra 2
And if the Xoom's not fast enough
Nothin' will satisfy you

I've got one hand on my Droid 2
The other on my mouse
I may need to grow a third hand
If a Xoom comes to my house

So mothers, tell your children
To sing a song like me
Don't just write about dual-core
Generosity

There is a site up on the web
Android Community
It is perfect for Android fans
And God, I know that's me

Best song ever!

      Hey, Stop whining. If you can do better than that, then do it and you’ll win.

      Did you read the post? I said he’s still got just as much a chance at winning as anyone else. Now go cry about it.

        “Each entry is considered equal, a random contest with random winners chosen”
        It’s called *reading.* I’m confused because you responded to Chris’s post, so I know you’re capable of reading…so I’m guessing stupidity over illiteracy.

        On a side note, I didn’t know they had internet on the Cahulawassee River.

    Who cares if he won. I wouldn’t post a vid of myself doing that for 700 bucks.
