'Seleno Gomez', Chilean Bus Passenger, Sings/Screams Selena Gomez Hit

What's public transportation without a tone-deaf man scream-singing in a language he doesn't speak?

This passenger in Santiago, Chile has earned the moniker "Seleno Gomez" for his err... well, "unique" cover of Selena Gomez's hit single "Love You Like A Love Song," which he performs behind a confused woman on Chile's public bus line, the Transantiago. The video, recorded by a fellow passenger, was uploaded to YouTube last week and already has over half a million views.

Seleno's version of the chorus is still contested, but YouTube user DeeTodo did a pretty good job at capturing Seleno's unique lyrics.

Where Selena sings, "I, I, I love you like a love song, baby/And I keep hittin' re-peat-peat-peat-peat-peat," DeeTodo surmises that Seleno's rendition goes, "A ai laviu, laca no son beibi/En maque mi pipipipipipipipip."

Although most maintain that Selena's version predated Seleno's, one can never be too sure... And the jury's still out on which one is better.
