Possibly the most awful drudgery of modern-day life is being stuck in traffic. I could go on a lengthy diatribe about how much I despise being stuck in bumper-to-bumper traffic, but the language I'd need to fully express my feelings is probably best not to share with polite company. YouTuber TJ Smith, however, seems to genuinely enjoy it!
TJ likes to lead highway sing-a-longs with total strangers who are stuck in traffic with him. If you're all stuck there together, you may as well have some fun right? For this edition of his "Highway Sing-A-Long" series, he chooses the infectiously happy "Build Me Up Buttercup" by The Foundations. It's the kind of song that gets stuck in your head right away, but it's a personal favorite so I certainly don't mind!
This video really made my day. I was actually stuck in traffic earlier this morning and got cut off by some jerk, and it just started my whole day on a sour note. I just can't stay mad when I hear this song, though, and I don't think anyone could help but smile at the moments when other motorists actually joined in with TJ.
