"Morrissey" isn't the first association you'd make when you think of T-Pain ("autotune" or "drank" might be more likely). And yet here we are: For his video for "Whatever I Want," a collaboration with Classixx, T-Pain has gifted us with a remarkably faithful recreation of the Smiths' "Stop Me If You Think You've Heard This One Before."

The video opens with card altered to read "Stop me if you think you've seen this one before," and then launches into T-Pain taking on the Moz role, leading a band of fellow Smiths fans as they cycle around L.A. Filmed on GoPros, the video is a shot-for-shot remake of the original, complete with Oscar Wilde, thick-rimmed specs, and some excellent jean jackets.

Watch the original Smiths joint below if you want to play "spot the difference."
