Guitar Hero Fan Bikes His Way Through The Living End’s "Prisoner of Society"

It often seems like all of YouTube can be split into three categories: 1) things that are impressive, 2) things that are stupid, and 3) things that are impressively stupid. Guess which one this video fits into.

Apparently, one person going by the name of “madflux” really likes him some Guitar Hero. So much in fact that he set up a bicycle course throughout his neighborhood of colored dots spaced apart to mimic the notes from “Prisoner of Society” by The Living End on the Hard difficulty. Then he wired a series of LED lights on the front of his bike to flash in time to the right notes. And to top it all off, he even put up special areas for “Star Power” to be triggered and a big “You Rock” banner at the end of it all. Then he rode his bike through the whole thing with a camera strapped to his head to make the video above.

According to the creator of this video, “Can?t tell you how many times it took to make this work, but it was a lot.” What I really want to know though is just how many hours it took him to even set all this up. Also, I’d like to know how many times he almost got hit by a car during shooting.

Thanks to John Moore for the tip!

Fits into category 1), no question.

I must disagree with Steve, this fits into category 2.
While impressive, it is a clear sign this person has NO LIFE

Well then if it remains impressive it’s category 3.
