Most Impressive: Eminem's 'Lose Yourself' Performed In American Sign Language

June 1, 2015


This is a very worthwhile video of Shelby Mitchusson translating Eminem's 'Lose Yourself' into American Sign Language (with audio so you can follow along). Apparently Shelby performed the song in an effort to secure an interpreting position, which, unsurprisingly, was successful. Wow, I never knew signing could seem so....hardcore. Now I don't know much, but I do know that Shelby could probably kick my ass.

Hit the jump for the video, it really is worth a watch, even if you just skip around for a couple seconds and pretend you're not at work.

Thanks to Monique R, who just flipped me the bird for absolutely no reason. I didn't deserve that.

    Gotta love the piano in hand gesture at the beginning though.

  • The Mayor

    lol so stupid. Looks anger the whole time. A giant waste of human energy.

  • Mike Heiman

    Shelby Mitchusson and Stephen Torrence would have beautiful ASL babies if they ever got together.

  • stuffsticks

    Yes, That dude's portal ASL was brilliant..

  • New Extension

    Overrated music is overrated.

  • I wonder what people that were born deaf think of this video? You reckon they think she looks like she's having a seizure or some shit with all the rocking back and forth?

  • The Magnificent Newtboy

    It's actually a big part of deaf culture to "sing" like this. Rhythmic signing with dance is a big deal.

    They also can feel the bass, so that might help.

  • Jeedai Infidel

    Cool. Now let's see someone do Bone Thugs-N-Harmony without the aid of amphetamines. Wow, the internet has dulled my sense of wonder.
