BIOSHOCK INFINITE Barbershop Quartet Cosplayers Sing ‘God Only Knows’
By Amy Ratcliffe on April 19, 2014
Like to sing and wear costumes? There’s a cosplay made for that combination. In BioShock Infinite, a barbershop quartet appears in the game on a flying barge. The quartet is voiced by A Mighty Wind, and they sing tunes like “Tainted Love” and the Beach Boys “God Only Knows.” You know, all the classics from 1912. It’s fitting, though, since the act is billed as “Tomorrow’s music today.”
One cosplay group at PAX East last weekend not only dressed in barbershop quartet costumes from the video game, they stopped in various places around the convention to perform. They do a great rendition of “God Only Knows,” and the dedication on display here is impressive. They sing the entire song! I’m floored.
If you haven’t seen the original cover from the game, it’s an entertaining watch:
What do you think — should these guys go on tour or what? Let us know if you’d buy tickets to see their show in the comments.
