The autocomplete function in Google can be unpredictable, so much so that it’s likely sent you down a wormhole that you didn’t initially intend on going down, all for the sake of curiosity.

It was only a matter of time before some enterprising individual utilized autocomplete to their advantage, or in this case, their amusement. Twitter user @DOGGEAUX entered each line of the The Killers‘ smash hit “Mr. Brightside” into Google and let the autocomplete function turn a dance floor igniter into a tale of random madness.

Instead of:

Coming out of my cage
And I’ve been doing just fine
Gotta gotta be down
Because I want it all

Google transformed it into:

Coming out of the closet
And I’ve been doing a little boozing
Gotta go fast
Because I want to know in Spanish

Meanwhile, the once catchy hook:

Jealousy, turning saints into the sea/Swimming through sick lullabies, choking on your alibis/But it’s just the price I pay, destiny is calling me/Open up my eager eyes, ’cause I’m Mr. Brightside

Is turned into the wonderfully absurd:

Jealousy turning point U.S.A.
Turning point U.S.A., choking the chicken
But it’s just the price is right
Destiny 2 is currently at capacity
‘Cause I’m having a good time

The possibilities are endless and any song is open to the unpredictable nature of Google. Take Eminem‘s “Stan” for instance. Instead of:

I sent two letters back in autumn
You must not’ve got ’em
There probably was a problem at the post office or somethin’
Sometimes I scribble addresses too sloppy when I jot ’em

You get:

I sent two boats and a helicopter
You must remember this
There probably is no god
Sometimes I dream about cheese

While the randomness of autocomplete isn’t groundbreaking, it is a fun way to kill time and spin some of your favorite lyrics into crazy non sequiturs. Google wins again.
