Want a perfect soul? Watch Kevin Bacon perform Radiohead's "Creep" for his goats

ABC/Eric McCandless

It’s been a tough year, so why not take some time for yourself and watch Kevin Bacon sing Radiohead‘s “Creep” for his goats?

We don’t want to over explain and risk taking away from the majesty of the moment, but suffice it to say that Bacon has at least two pet goats, and will sing to them on occasion. In an Instagram post, the Footloose actor shares a video of him strumming an acoustic version of Radiohead’s ’90s alienation anthem while his goats adorably prance around him.

“The goats wanted me to play this, I don’t really think it’s appropriate,” Bacon mumbles in the video, but, as he writes in the caption, “The goats were insisting.” Thus, we have Kevin Bacon covering Radiohead’s “Creep” for his goats.

Bacon has actually been posting videos of his goat-request covers as part of his #GoatSongs series. He’s previously covered artists including Frank Ocean, Beach Boys and 4 Non Blondes.

Oh, and in case you’re wondering, yes, Thom Yorke does fit within the Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon. As detailed by the site OracleofBacon.org, Yorke was in the 2016 documentary The Man from Mo’Wax, which also featured Grandmaster Flash. The hip-hop pioneer makes an uncredited cameo in Jon Favreau‘s 2001 directorial debut Made, as does Sam Rockwell, who stars in 2008’s Frost/Nixon alongside — you guessed it — Kevin Bacon.
