Ok, so you’ve all got to be familiar with the Cups song from the surprisingly good musical movie Glee Pitch Perfect by now. It’s a cover of Lulu and the Lampshades song, which was a rendition of a 1930s folk song, and has inspired a whole host of Youtube covers, some that were spot on and others, well, not so much – but the less we say about those the better.

This latest cover, by some of Youtube’s finest, is the best we’ve seen so far, rivalling Anna Kendrick’s own solo rendition. The cup clapping quartet includes Sam Tsui, Alex G, Kina Grannis (who we adore!) and Kurt Schneider. Sooo catchy and so clever, but the question is, could you do better? We’d love to see you try! Send us links to your own renditions and we’ll check them out.
