The funniest thing you'll see today*

nothing's fine, she's tornJohann Lippowitz is Austria's foremost interpretive dance artiste, if you're the sort of person who believes the first three results you get when you search for someone's name on Google.

But the crazy dancer in a beanie hat is actually the comic creation of David Armand, a contemporary of Peep Show stars Mitchell and Webb at Cambridge - although, unlike those two, he never made it into the legenday Footlights crew.

As Lippowitz, he's been performing an hilarious mimed version of Natalie Imbruglia's Torn in comedy clubs around the world for the past couple of years -- and last month he got the chance to perform the song on stage with the pint-sized Australian songstrel herself as part of Amnesty International's Secret Policeman's Ball. Lucky bastard.

It was shown on the telly earlier this week, which means it has finally made its way onto Youtube, which means you can watch it below - but only if you promise to support Amnesty by buying the DVD for Christmas.

Make sure to stick with it to the bitter end - it just keeps getting better.

I think my crush on Natalie Imbruglia has just got a little bit worse.

*Unless you see someone slip over on a banana peel. That's pretty fucking funny.
