Arcade Fire's Win Butler sang his own song at a karaoke bar in LA: Watch

Arcade Fire frontman Win Butler was in Los Angeles this weekend to participate in the NBA All-Star Celebrity Game. After scoring seven points, grabbing 10 rebounds, making four assists and securing a 75-66 victory, Butler celebrated at a karaoke bar in the city’s Little Tokyo neighborhood, reports CoS.

While at the bar though, something strangely amusing occurred. Butler noticed that the karaoke list included one of Arcade Fire’s own songs, ‘Intervention’ from their 2007 sophomore record, ‘Neon Bible’. Evidently, fascinated by this, Butler decided to give the song a shot, much to the delight of the local crowd.

The charismatic indie rocker, whose band secured a Grammy nomination for Best Alternative Album for 2017’s ‘Everything Now’, even managed to get the crowd going with a synchronized slow clap. Watch fan-shot video of Butler’s celebratory karaoke performance below:

Twitter user Victoria Tamer was delighted that her video got featured on the band's channel. She even managed to get a selfie with Butler, which definitely made her day. For the first time since their debut album - 2004's 'Funeral' - Arcade Fire received mixed reviews for their album last year, instead of the usual resounding high praise that they're used to receiving after they abandoned their usual record label, Merge Records and signed on with Columbia. See some of the fan reactions to Win's shenanigans below: 

 Seriously 😭😡😭😡😭😡😭😡
