Smashing Pumpkins' "1979" Gets Synched Up to a Rollercoaster Ride and Turns Billy Corgan into a Meme Again
Twitter user @stellamelos created a hilarious clip blending footage of a plunging rollercoaster expertly timed to the lyrics of "1979." Since getting posted to Reddit, it's gone totally viral.
Now instead of just laughing at a soundless photograph, you can hear Corgan singing, "Weeeeeee" in a monotonous croon as the rollercoaster drops.
Check out the snippet below.

And in case you're wondering if Corgan is capable of having fun at amusement parks, he confirmed last year that he did indeed return to Disneyland — and he had a great time.
