Ah, nothing quite like the a college-age bro whipping out his acoustic guitar and launching into some tunes, usually something by Dave Matthews or Bob Marley. Green Day's "Good Riddance" is another standard, as the prankster in this video is well-aware. Watch as his buddy tries unsuccessfully to get through a song, any song, without him yelling out the opening lyrics to "Good Riddance."

The video was made by YouTuber Chris Melberger, who gained internet fame via the now-defunct Vine. His victim is his friend (roommate?) and acoustic guitar fan, Snake Rogers. Melberger told The Daily Dot that the non-stop pranking stemmed from a private joke between the two guys, explaining, "The concept for the video occurred when my friend would start jamming on his guitar and I would randomly sing the wrong song. Green Day's just felt right for some reason because it felt like it could go with any song no matter how random the artist was."
