If you’ve ever yearned for evidence that life is a wildly incomprehensible and disturbingly circular simulation, here it is.

Overnight, a video of comedic deity Mike Myers taking to a stage in Los Angeles surfaced. He wasn’t there to do stand up; nor was he there to spruik Dr Evil‘s 2020 presidential run.

Instead, he got up and did a rendition of BBC, a most iconic tune from the greatest cinematic feat of 1997Austin Powers: International Man Of Mystery.

If your memory of this song is hazy, shame on you, but also here it is:

To make matters all the more confusingly delicious, Myers’ performance was actually just a guest spot in what was a Liam & Neil Finn (of Split Endz and Crowded House fame) show at Largo in LA.

There mightn’t have been a paisley pocket square or yellowed tooth in sight, but Myers gave the performance a spirited crack, complete with an appropriately-horned up British accent:

Indie Upstart Mike Myers Just Revived ‘BBC’ With Kirin J Callinan & Mac DeMarco

Instead of bringing Powers’ OG band Ming Tea up on stage, Myers called on some ‘Strayan reinforcements in the form of Mac DeMarco and Kirin J Callinan.

This wild supergroup of artists was rounded out by Connan Mockasin, Natalie Mering of Weyes Blood and John Caroll Kirby.

Mike, wherever you are right now, we’re still holding out hope for the fourth instalment. Please, for the love of our sardonic Dog, make it happen.

Our bodies are ready.
