I saw someone post a tweet with a gif animation (a rock star singing something). The tweet itself is about some stock's price going up or down.

Every comment under that tweet is talking the stock price. And I want to post a comment to ask who is that rock star and which song is him singing.

Well, I want to ask with a little sense of humor.

Can I say,

"Am I the only one who wants to know what music video is in this gif?"


Grammatically, the sentence is OK.

However, you might receive some answers with "a little sense of humor" too:

  • Yes, you are the only one.

  • No, you are not he only one.

And in the end, you still do not know anything about the band or about the song.

It would be more helpful to ask:

  • What's the name of the song in the video?
  • What is the name of the band performing?

Not English related, but related to the content of the question: while the video is playing, use an online service like Shazam to identify details about the song: title, band...

  • Awesome tips. Thanks! – darkrose1977 Apr 27 '19 at 1:41
