Dan Sinker’s star rose quickly when he admitted he was the man behind the tawdry and fucking hilarious fake twitter account @MayorEmanuel. To celebrate the release of his book The F***ing Epic Twitter Quest Of @MayorEmanuel, which canonizes the entire twitter feed of the fake mayoral candidate, Sinker held a little gathering at The Hideout where Wilco frontman and Chicago mainstay Jeff Tweedy arrived and performed The Black Eyed Peas’ party anthem “I Got A Feeling”. With his tongue is firmly planted in his cheek, Tweedy laughs his way through the song and deconstructs several minutes of the song for the attendees, and still somehow manages to make it sound really good. Check out the video below, (via Time Out Chicago).
