By speeding down Justin Bieber’s unlistenably lame song “U Smile” by 800 percent, someone has created a 35 minute epic/soporific masterwork. They made lemonade out of lemons or some shit. When the vocals come in, it’s like Justin Bieber is calling for you from, like, the most far out nebula in deep space, man.
It sounds kinda like some sort of Panda Bear driven Animal Collective b-side. Perhaps if one slowed down Sigur Ros’ “Svefn-g-Englar” by 200 percent, the resulting piece would come close to matching the absolute majesty of this latest gift from the internet.

You may have heard this already. In the past 48 hours, the slow-mo Bieber track has passed rapidly through the internet with some sites comparing it to the more experimental work of Hans Zimmer (most recently known for his work on the Inception soundtrack). It is unclear who the true artist behind this experiment is. Somebody calling themselves Shamantis is vying with the Photon Wave Orchestra for credit blah blah blah. In any case, this is clearly a work of genius.
Since this will in all likelihood be my final Method post on the tween-pop phenom, I will not pass up the opportunity to leave you all with this revealing picture of Justin Bieber forcing an awkward smile before his insatiable fans. Like this song, it is a glimpse into Bieber’s tortured, intricate soul.
