Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood played a prank on Thom Yorke during the band’s US show last night, with him looping a clip of the singer muttering “aw, shit” during one of their songs.

Yorke came out with the expletive after struggling with technical issues during the band’s set in Berkeley, California, with Greenwood sampling and looping it during their performance of ‘Give Up The Ghost’. The band, not exactly known for their levity, amused those in attendance by playing through the song’s intro alongside Yorke’s outburst. Yorke is eventually shown breaking down in laughter.
