TV viewers probably don't remember Mudvayne's surprising performance during the 2021 Oscars that aired live from Los Angeles on Sunday (April 25) — and that's because it didn't happen. But in the mind of YouTuber Thomas Wykes, it totally did.
It's only been three days since those 93rd Academy Awards took place and just over a week since the influential "Dig" rockers led by Hellyeah's Chad Gray announced their long-awaited reunion. Wykes took a cue from each event, splicing an old live video of Mudvayne with footage of past Oscars ceremonies and their many celebrity attendees. The result, if one suspends their disbelief, makes it look like the band is performing for an audience full of Hollywood actors.
