It's being called "the most embarrassing performance in the history of Polish television," which may or many not actually say much, but there's no doubt this is horrible, even by non-Polish standards.

On a recent episode of the popular morning show Good Morning TVN, local celebrity Patricia Dłutkiewicz, better known as Patty, performed her latest song "Krzyk" (Scream) accompanied by two pantsless "musicians" who clearly had no idea what they were doing.

Most of the Internet's attention has been focused on Angelika Fajcht, Patty's "guitarist," whose previous claim to fame was appearing in Poland's edition of Playboy [NSFW].

In addition to making no discernible effort to so much as pretend to play the guitar, many quickly noted that even if she wanted to fake it she couldn't: Her instrument was upside down.

After footage of the fiasco went viral, Patty's manager Angelina Konkol attempted to save face by claiming that generating controversy with lousy stand-ins was her plan all along.

"We expected that the performance will become viral and be controversial, that was the plan from the beginning," she told the news portal Interia. "It is better to look at beautiful models pretending to play the guitar than ugly musicians who actually play the guitar."

And with that, Konkol inadvertently summed up the state of popular music in the year 2013.
