Proving that a cute white boy turning a mildly creepy jam into a passionate love song can lead to Internet heights only the likes of cute cat videos have ever seen, Joseph Gordon-Levitt performed R. Kelly’s “Ignition” remix live on Monday night, to an eager college crowd. Now usually he doesn’t do this, but—actually that’s not true at all, as Levitt has both strengthened his Internet persona and cemented his crushable status with a range of popular covers through his online production vehicle hitRECord.org. He treated those gathered at the Ohio State Univeristy to his take on the Pied Piper’s late-night anthem, employing a little of his perfected Axl Rose growl to make his words really hit home with audience members. Give JGL extra points for substituting “fuck” for “freak.” Looks like you can still bring this one home to your parents!
