If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, alternative band Radiohead should be pleased with R&B crooner Frank Ocean’s cover of “Fake Plastic Trees”.

Performing for a small, but intimate crowd in NYC last night, the “Thinkin Bout You” sang a small snippet the standout Radiohead track out that would make frontman Thom Yorke proud.

Although the audio behind the fan shot video could be better, Ocean still comes in loud and clear.

Did Frank do Radiohead justice?
