Ameiloooo Covers Thao's "Bag of Hammers"

A Google Alert directed me to a YouTuber Amelioooo’s cover of Thao Nguyen’s “Bag of Hammers.” I dig the harmonizing "bass line" played on the lower strings of the ukelele. There's a little bit of vocal de-tuning, characteristic of Thao which, I think, requires an added inebriated effect to make it work. Expect to hear a fun, smart performance using ukelele, salt shakers, and vocal harmony.

Here’s the original by Thao and the Get Down Stay Down, if you’re interested in making a comparison. What do you like/dislike about the original? What do you like/dislike about the cover version?
