    2. cinismo textual Drummer Mode: *ALSO ON*

    3. Metronome mode: On

  7. 1:25 that cymbal choke alone is enough to kill Thanos

    1. Why is there a hihat playing on count 1? He’s playing nothing there. It an edited take?

    2. @Dave Menkehorstno it’s what most drummers, such as myself do, when getting the last note drag on to the next note we open the hi hat so it sounds as if he never took his hands off for that brief second, especially done when hitting cymbals

    3. je si didn’t choke it then

    4. @Caz Mataz It absolutely does!

  8. Michael Jackson’s drummer? More like Michael was Jonathan Moffett’s singer on this one

    1. Nop..dont compare them..if there is no michel jackson..he will not get such fame..mj was a perfectionlist..he wanted his band members perfect

    2. Acsah Mathew u dont get sarcasm don’t you?

    3. @PigeonFlyingX oh sry i got it😅

    4. Acsah Mathew Jeff Porcaro did the drums on the album. Would have been expensive to use the same musicians on tours that did the studio work. Although if you supplied the cocaine, Eddie might have come anyway.

  9. I could easily do what he’s doing.

    Not sugarfoot… The other guy who’s just looking at him.

    1. Then do it

    2. His name is Joseph he is amazed mezmorized

    3. LOL!!!!

  10. me: loooool cymbals at the back sooo useless!
    me: O.O

  11. Everyone is talking about 1:25 but duuuude look at 3:02 it’s wild

    1. tbh 1:25 is wildest

    2. Even later on he does the same but with an extra crash going forward. So sexy

    3. Crisp.

    4. Both is SmooOoOoOOoooOth

  12. Michael Jackson: _”I’m a Perfectionist and I want y-“_

    Sugarfoot: _”ok mike . I will inform you later if you’re out of beat”_

    Michael Jackson : 👁️👄👁️

    1. 😂😂

    2. Apparently MJ once said that Sugarfoot was the only one who never made mistakes during the gigs.

    3. ‘out of beat’

    4. Lol that’s good lol

  13. He move his head like metronome, and his hand following his head.. Perfect timing…

    1. @CaptainProCraft Fam all he said was he moves his head to the beat like a metronome. It’s not that deep.

    2. 🤣😂😅😅😂😂

    3. Got Tourette’s

    4. Its pretty common since drummers cant tap a foot if they have double petals

    5. @Hacksaw Havoc most musicians move with their playing

  14. The 3.8k dislikes were probably Australians who thought it was the like button


    1. Juaaaaaaaaaa!!!!

    2. Lmao i feel like this is sarcastic as hell, someone explain please

    3. @Brian Nyelang Australians are thought to be upside down in anything in the meme world because they are opposite to the memers in Northern Hemisphere. They are located in Southern Hemisphere, so their world will be upside-down. That is why I said that the 3.7 thousand people were Aussies who thought it was the like button.

    4. From an Australian, all I can say is…

      You’re not wrong

    5. Oi . Yer still on the Imperial measurements so piss off, mate.

  15. “Your CV?”
    “I was Michael Jackson’s drummer ”
    “What kind of sports car do you want to drive to our studio?”

    1. lmfao

  16. plot twist: the voice is michael’s who is singing from heaven, sugarfoot is simply summoning him

    1. Neko Medic no, just no

    2. Maskjain why?

  17. Who can even dislike this? How can you not appreciate the gift this is to us to be able to experience this?! Amazing performance!

  18. Scientists: we can keep incredibly accurate time by using an atomic clock.

    Atomic clock: I use this to keep time.

  19. 3:02 Everyone’s gangsta until the drummer starts dislocating his shoulders.

    1. Only scum is gangsta

  20. 1:25 I tried that cymbal choke and dislocated both of my shoulders
