Oates!

As the world’s biggest (and only) Hall & Oates fan, I wanted to draw attention to the fact that John Oates—yes, Oates!—recently had a big moment in the sun.

Here it is.

All hail the Oates.

PS: And, for the record, while his version wasn’t dazzling, it killed Taylor Swift.

PPS: And, for the record, Oates destroyed Hall, who butchered the anthem back in 1993.

PPPS: But nothing matches this. Well, maybe this. Actually, this was absolutely brutal.

PPPPS: I feel bad about all the garbage. Check this out, and feel better. Man, this guy was special.
