Here is an example of a good meme: a spirited, hip-shaking performance by Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke synced up with Daddy Yankee’s 2004 club hit “Gasolina.” You may have seen it:

It’s good, and even Daddy Yankee, who is finding chart success again in 2017 with his Bieber-featuring smash “Despacito,” agrees. ‘When I saw the video, I was like, “Is that real?!”” Yankee said in a new Rolling Stone interview. “‘It was a great video, even though I thought it was real. I have a ton of respect for Radiohead. They’re a great, amazing band.’”

We wish he had gone on. Does Daddy Yankee like “Pyramid Song” or not? If you hear anything, let us know.
