Jimmy Somerville

Here’s a delightful clip that made the rounds over the weekend: A guitar-slinging busker is filmed singing Bronski Beat’s 1984 single “Smalltown Boy” on a Berlin sidewalk when none other than Jimmy Somerville himself, apparently out walking his dog, stops by and pitches it. At the end, the musician points to Somerville and asks, “Is it you?”

Check out the full clip below via Onkel Bernis Welt, plus the original video. If it’s not a staged viral bit — and if it is, the cardinal sin of vertical cellphone filming is a nice “authentic” touch — it’s certainly a fun run-in.
