Watch Eric Clapton Fail Miserably at Guitar…(not really)

We all know that Eric Clapton is one of the world’s greatest guitarists.

And if you didn’t know that, consider this…

Eric Clapton is the only 3-time inductee to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, being inducted as a solo artist, as a member of Cream, and as a member of the Yardbirds.  In addition to that, Clapton was ranked #2 by Rolling Stone magazine in their “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time” list, and also ranked 4th by legendary guitar manufacturer, Gibson, on their “Top 50 Guitarists of All Time” list.  And in 2009, Clapton came in at number 5 in Time magazine’s list of “The Ten Best Electric Guitar Players”.

Look up any information regarding Eric Clapton, and you’re bound to find praise, upon praise, upon praise for his ability to make any song remarkable.  Also, pull up any YouTube video of Clapton in any venue, and you will treat yourself to some of the finest guitar work the human race has ever had the pleasure of hearing and witnessing.

Wait…did we say any YouTube video?  We did, didn’t we?  Well, how about almost any YouTube video, because it looks like we found the exception.

In the following clip, we see Eric Clapton, the master himself, failing miserably at playing the guitar.  And it’s hilarious!

But, before you go nuts and blast us for spreading lies and defaming a legend, know that this clip is absolutely and positively a fake.  Someone went to great lengths to make Clapton look bad and cause us all to have a good chuckle, and they did an excellent job of it, too.

By no means is this meant to disrespect Eric Clapton.  Rather, we thought that if you hadn’t seen this clip, that you could use a good laugh. And to whoever created this masterpiece, you sir, have a sick and twisted sense of humor – and we love it!

Wait until the saxophone comes in.  Enjoy!
