Chicagoan Jan Terri in Running For Worst Music Video Ever

Chicago Chanteuse and
YouTube Sensation, Jan Terri

With more than 1.7 million views so far, Chicagoan, Jan Terri may well win the YouTube competition for worst music video ever.

The charming Windy City chanteuse has created a video containing her ethereal musical strains accompanied by panoramic Chicago sites -- the skyline, Edens Expressway, (the former) Sears Tower, River North, the lakefront, O'Hare airport.

Particularly of note is the lyrically elegant and grammatically interesting line: "I can't take it no more."

We are told she was entirely serious when she did this:

Ms. Terri has a complete CD (we are not making this up)containing this and many more of her interesting vocal offerings which may be perused here.

It comes with free shipping.


  1. There was a link on the YouTube page for this video.
    The Daily Show back in 2000 had a feature on this, pretty funny.

  2. That Daily show clip had me in the aisles. This woman is poster girl for our infinite capacity for self delusion.

  3. I saw it was made in 1993, which explains the phone call from a phone booth and not a cell phone.

    I'm so torn - I hate to criticize people who can't sing because I can't carry a tune in a bucket. However, I also like to think I'm smart enough not to put my lack of talent on display like this! LOL

  4. You got to hand it to her for trying, but if she had any true friends, they should tell her that she's horrible and don't make a fool of yourself. I am all for working hard and chasing your dreams, I've done it, but you have to be realistic.


Comments invited, however anonymous commentors had better deal directly with the issues raised and avoid ad hominem drivel. As for Teachers' Union seminar writers -- forget about it.
