Reggie Watts disorients you in the most entertaining way


(Non English) (French) Mais Des fois on peut voir
parce Que Les gens ici faire Des choses on peut manger. (French) Mais quand
tu es fâché avec quelqu’un c’est pas passé the first time. (British English) And that’s one
of the things that I enjoy most about this convention. It’s not so much, as so little
has to do with what everything is. (Laughter) But it is within our self-interest to understand the topography of our lives unto ourselves. (Laughter) The future states that there is no time other than the collapsation
of that sensation of the mirror of the memories
in which we are living. (Laughter) Common knowledge, but important nonetheless. (Laughter) As we face fear in these times, and fear is all around us, we also have anti-fear. It’s hard to imagine or measure. The background radiation
is simply too static to be able to be seen
under the normal spectral analysis. (American accent) But we feel
as though there are times when a lot of us —
you know what I’m saying? But — you know what I’m saying? Because, as a hip hop thing,
you know what I’m saying, TED be rocking —
you know what I’m saying. Like so I wrote a song, and I hope you guys dig it. It’s a song about people and sasquatches — (Laughter) And other French science stuff. That’s French science. Okay, here we go. (Singing) I’ve been trying inside I know that I’m in trouble (Applause) that I’m in trouble by myself But every time it gets me (Vocalization) (Beatbox) (Singing) And I’ve been trying
to be the one that you believe in And you’re the one
that I want to be so saucy And you’re the one
I want to [unclear], baby And you can do anything as long as you don’t get hurt
along the way back (Beatbox) If I survive, I’m going
to tell you what is wrong Because if you were [unclear] And I think that you’re looking
like a [unclear] I give you what I want to be (Music) (Music ends abruptly) (British accent) And it’s like, you could use as many
of those things that you want. (Applause) And the computer models, no matter how many that you have and how many people that you use, are never going to be able to arrive
at the same conclusions. Four years ago I worked with a few people
at the Brookings Institute, and I arrived at a conclusion. (Laughter) Tomorrow is another day. (Laughter) Not just any day, but it is a day. It will get here, there’s no question. And the important thing to remember is that this simulation is a good one. It’s believable, it’s tactile. You can reach out — things are solid. You can move objects
from one area to another. You can feel your body. You can say, “I’d like to go over
to this location,” and you can move this mass
of molecules through the air over to another location, at will. (Laughter) That’s something
you live inside of every day. Now with the allocation
and the understanding of the lack of understanding, we enter into a new era of science in which we feel nothing more than so much so as to say that those within themselves, comporary or non-comporary, will figuratively figure into the folding of our non-understanding and our partial understanding to the networks
of which we all draw our source and conclusions from. (Laughter) So, as I say before the last piece, feel not as though
it is a sphere we live on, rather an infinite plane
which has the illusion of leading yourself
back to the point of origin. (Laughter) Once we understand
that all the spheres in the sky are just large infinite planes, it will be plain to see. (Laughter) (Audience) (Laughter) This is my final piece. And just remember, everything you are — it’s more important to realize
the negative space, as music is only the division of space; it is the space
we are listening to divided as such, which gives us the information
in comparison to something other that gives us the idea of what the idea
that wants to be transmitted wants to be. So please, without further ado. (Applause) Thank you. (Applause) This is a fun one. It goes like this. (Beatbox) (Gibberish) (Music ends) Okay, for the last piece I’d like to do, this one goes very similar to this. I hope you guys recognize it. Here we go. Okay, that still works. Okay, good. All right, here we go. (Laughter) (Beatbox) Here we go. (Beatbox) Yeah, yo, yo, yo (Gibberish) (Music fades out) Thank you. Enjoy the rest. (Applause)

  1. Kids and their hip hops, and EDM, and punk rock, and disco, and doo wop, and jazz, and blues, and ragtime… I'm from the classical period.

  2. speaks like a leftist trying to convince the hard working that socialism (higher taxes and giving away their property) is best.

  3. I think that song towards the end was cut short because he made a mistake with the first loop so he was having trouble putting the rest in time, then he started over. I read on Wikipedia his shows are improvised so it could be the case.

  4. I'm not sure if it's all the more ironic, but I hear Alan Watts around 1:35 and again at 5:51 😁

    7:10 begins to sound like Douglas Adams.

  5. If God had to choose between Morgan Freeman or Reggie Watts to talk for him or about him… he would pick the right one.

  6. It's not so much as so little to do with what everything is, but it is within our self interests to understand the topography of our lives undo ourselves.
    The future states that there is no time other than the collapsation of adsensation of the mirror of the memories of which we are living, common knowledge, but important non the less.
    As we face fear in these times, and fear is all around us, we also have anti-fear, it's hard to imagine or measure, the background radiation is simply too static to be able to be seen under the normal spectral analysis.

  7. Only one man is both this talented and able to satirize TED Talks directly to their face.

    I only wish I could remember which man it is.

  8. Fucking genius!!!! He has tapped into the very essence of making a hit song. He can literally say NOTHING and it's a slap!

  9. Reggie Watts character sheet excerpt :

    Charisma : 9
    Intellect : 2
    Languages : French(3), English (5), Gibberish (5)
    Hair : Yes

  10. The first song I actually heard a few years ago in a Soundcloud cover, before I even watched this video, and I never realized it was a cover https://soundcloud.com/ethan-stanley/tryin-to-be-the-one

  11. I believe Reg is a musical genius. I’m not sure but it seems these pieces are if not completely, very close to complete improvisations. Melodically he is a beast; transcribe that first Acapella melody. It’s stunning; form, phrase, structure, pitch control, evocation. Plus his rhythm is completely out of this fucking world; all round bad mother fkr level musicianship. That’s not even starting on his lyric OR how the fk he evokes such powerful emotive response even without text / lyric; just with phonetic sounds; rhythm; nonsense syllables etc… just wow….

  12. I am looking for an old video in wich a dude presented his invention of a sort of rhytmical, phonetical alphabet, it sounded very much like konnakol/scat singing, it was kind of repetitive and progressive, meaningful and funny to listen to. Anyone knows it? Help.

  13. Pretty sure he's a genius because I misunderstood everything he said so clearly. Now everything makes complete partial sense, or will have at some unspecified point in the recent past.

  14. Someone PLEASE tell me what the name of the first song he is singing in this clip and if he has it out on one of his albums???

  15. Reggie is the only human being who has access to the true origin and meaning of our reality, and this is his attempt to use our primitive human languages to illustrate it to us.
    It's clear our primate brains cannot, or refuse to, process this information.

  16. I cannot be the only one who actually understands him from 5:05 to 6:00, right? I don't understand what people is laughing about, is quite deep really.
