This Michigan-bred musician nails 29 celebrity impressions in one song

Update: Rob Cantor has posted a new video showing how he faked every one of the 29 celebrity impressions, using the voices of 11 different impressionists. I'm a fool.   

How's your work day going? Productive? Ready for a break? Good. 

Rob Cantor is a Los Angeles-based musician who grew up in Michigan.

You might know him as the guy in the yellow tie from Tally Hall, a band that formed while Cantor and his band mates attended the University of Michigan in 2002.

Tally Hall took a run at stardom after signing with Atlantic Records. They had some appearances on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, and, as the band's Wikipedia page claims, Tally Hall continues to have a "relatively significant cult following."

More recently, Tally Hall's band members have been working on solo projects, and Cantor is promoting a new solo album.

That brings us to the crazy video Cantor posted today.

The video features one of the songs from Cantor's new album, but instead of singing the whole thing in his own voice, Cantor performs the lyrics while doing 29 different celebrity impressions.

Oh, and BTW, his impressions are crazy good.

Where the heck does that Shakira voice even come from? I can't figure it out.

Anyway, enjoy:
