This video of a lady trying to learn beatboxing from Dharni is the best thing ever

Laugh until stomach pain.

The latest thing to entertain the Internet today involves a Singaporean, and it’s hilariously awesome.

We hope you know Dharni Ng, because if you don’t, you’re about to get schooled.

Not only is he a world-renowned beatboxer, he’s also made history for Singapore on the global beatboxing stage, when he came up tops at the Grand Beatbox Battle Championship twice in a row, in 2013 and 2014.

He’s also opened for the Black Eyed Peas, Lady Gaga, Kanye West and has performed also, previously, with Mariah Carey.

But we’re here to tell you about his beatboxing lessons, a few of which he has posted to his YouTube channel.

Like this one, on the human throat bass:

And these, on the human echo:

He also has one on how to mimic the sound of water:


Enter Chinese Weibo user who goes by the online moniker 辣目洋子 (La Mu Yang Zi), who decided to try to pick up a new skill — and let’s face it, she’s probably all of us if we tried too.

We found at least two videos of her trying to learn the echo, and the water droplet sound, which were originally uploaded to her Weibo account via Miaopai, a Chinese video sharing app — these are YouTube copies re-uploaded with credit:

It was then re-uploaded to places like 9GAG:

And a Facebook page called Asian Crush:

But this one of her learning how to mimic the sound of water is also a champ clip:

It’s almost like she goes through stages — from excitement and eagerness:

To annoyance (from incompetence):

To sheer frustration:

Best three minutes or so of our day spent.

By the way, Dharni has lived in Warsaw in Poland for the past six years, and has eked out a pretty nifty career there — he’s also well-known among locals, many of whom may not even know he’s Singaporean.

Here he is with a singer he works with, K-Leah, doing a Burger King stunt (Bez Kapusky in Polish translates to “without a cabbage”, by the way, in case anyone’s wondering):

And after bumping into The Straits Times at an event, he plugged Poland as a great place to live — and we can’t help but agree:
