Nathan “Whippy” Griggs, the Aussie bloke who captured hearts by whip-cracking to the beat of a Shannon Noll classic has returned with his take on Flume‘s fresh tune Never Be Like You, in another episode of some true-blue whip-cracking action.
Whippy dropped his crackin’ Flume remix after triple j‘s Veronica and Lewis challenged him as part of their ‘People Who Are Better Than You’ segment, because, well, Whippy is better than anyone when it comes to recreating contemporary music with nothing but a whip and a singlet.
Posting the video of Whippy’s Never Be Like You remix (below) to his Facebook, Flume has called the cover a “cracking australiana remix”, giving Whippy a virtual tip of his producer’s hat.
Whippy, who has been cracking whips since he was 14 and who now hits a record 614 whips per minute, has told Veronica and Lewis that he’s “always been awesome” at cracking whips, and we don’t doubt him for a second. Catch Whippy’s Flume remix in all its glory alongside his full triple j interview, below.
