Warning: linked video contains graphic and profane material.

Ann Arbor musician Dan Henig recently pulled a prank at B-24s Espresso Bar in downtown Ypsilanti, playing a live, folksy, acoustic cover of Lil Jon and the East Side Boys' hip-hop smash "Get Low"—and the video chronicling Henig's performance—as well as patrons' amused response to Henig's sensitive delivery of the song's graphic, vulgar lyrics—has gone viral, currently approaching 1.2 million views on YouTube.

Check it out here—but be warned that the song contains graphic and potentially offensive adult language.

How did he keep a straight face while sweetly singing such words? Amazing voice. I'd ask someone to pass me a slang dictionary but I don't think I want to know.
