“Initially I got into Eminem and was obsessed with learning all the words to “Real Slim Shady,'” Dan told Jimmy. “I’ve always had an obsession with memorizing complicated — lyrically — and intricate, fast songs. It’s a disease.” That’s when Jimmy challenged him (or “challenged” him, as if they hadn’t rehearsed), and our minds were blown.
Who knew that Harry Potter had it in him?!
Not only did DanRad just know the words, he performed the song with such enthusiasm that we have to wonder if he’ll be adding yet another skill to his resume!
