What the man says[edit]

{{spoilers}} This video is among my favourites. But I'm still stumped on the end part, where the man explains why he's lying down. Does anybody know how to lip read? Because if they could, I was wondering if they could have a look on the video and see if they can decipher what he says. if you could do that, thanks. Ndrly 00:09, 28 December 2006 (UTC)

I can read lips. He says "I'll tell you wh-- [jump cut interruption] I'll tell you why". tgies 23:00, 18 January 2007 (UTC)
Huh. So, based on that, before we could find out what he said, the camera jumped to the Radiohead members, then it cut back to everybody lying down. - Ndrly 04:13, 20 January 2007 (UTC)
Seems more likely that they simply used a couple of clips from other takes of the scene out of convenience, and we're supposed to imagine that the second and third repetitions of "I'll tell you why" are him saying something completely different. Which is what most people do anyway. tgies 11:29, 11 June 2007 (UTC)
Yes, it's how Ndrly says, he says "I'll tell you why", twice. --ScarletSpiderDavE 07:21, 27 February 2007 (UTC)
Actually, I was the one who said that, but close enough :) tgies 11:26, 11 June 2007 (UTC)
One of my friends said he could read lips and said the man said, "Down is the new up." I believed him because (a) it makes sense in the context of the song and (b) it's the name of a new Radiohead song. But if everybody disagrees with me, we can remove my addition. ---ethan
I just did. there's no credible evidence that he says this. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 213.122.16.226 (talk) 18:17, 27 February 2007 (UTC).
I saw "See what I see" when he talked. How about anyone else? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 63.77.61.40 (talk) 03:30, 24 April 2007 (UTC).
Might I just point out that, regardless of how certain anyone is of what he's saying, there's no reason to add any such theories to the article itself, as that's original research. tgies 11:26, 11 June 2007 (UTC)
I'm pretty suprised that this hasn't been talked about before, but Radiohead members are known to be big "Hitchikers Guide to the Galaxy" fans and I believe this is a direct reference to a scene in the series when the earth is about to be destroyed and Arthur Dent asks his friend what they should do in preperation. His friend Ford Prefect replies that perhaps they should lie down in the fetal position. Can anyone else confirm this?

Looks like he's saying "E=MC^2"58.165.27.1 (talk) 09:21, 8 August 2008 (UTC)

Clearly no one knows what he's saying, including Thraves or Radiohead. Someone mentioned Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy: if there is any parallel, it's to the girl who figured out the Ultimate Question (to Life, The Universe, and Everything) just before the earth was blown up, so it was lost forever. Obviously, Douglas Adams didn't know what that question would have been. Not saying you can't speculate about what he might have said, just saying there's probably nothing behind it, and leaving it unintelligible makes it seem mysterious and pregnant to great effect. I love this video. Torgo (talk) 15:07, 3 January 2009 (UTC)

Article needs serious attention[edit]

This article is full of unattributed claims (see [who?]) and what appears to be good bit of original research (see [original research?] by the author. Will an experienced Wikipedian please try to remedy these problems? Hanjabba 18:21, 13 April 2007 (UTC)
