Best bass face?

Is this the ultimate bass face, as the title proclaims?

I call this the "rooted groove"

From the looks of things, I'm willing to bet he was just very high. Very, very high.

Excellent!

I like how his faces change to fit the mood changes in the piece. He's really feeling it!
His eyes look suspicious. I suspect a little more than a spliff is at work here - though it would be awesome if he's sober :P

He's definitely out of it. There are parts where he looks like he's talking to himself and laughing.

The eyes are the give away though.

The original one is the best, with those wobbly asymetrical eyes.

She looks a bit emotionless though, in typical bass player pose.

Give it a watch, just put it on mute if you don't "dig" the song.
A whole 3 minutes of epic bass faces, epic to the point of hilarity.
