Here's Ronan Farrow Covering Avril Lavigne On The Guitar At A Hackathon

Just some good, clean, libertarian fun.

Posted on

Ronan Farrow arrived at a Rand Paul for President hackathon in San Francisco on Saturday planning to cover the competition for NBC.

But the blue-eyed newsman soon became the main event.

As he waited for the hackathon to begin, Farrow, who is famous as the son of Mia Farrow and for his impressive resume in politics and advocacy, treated the programmers and reporters in the room to an impromptu concert.

"The Enemy," by Andrew Belle


"Bad Romance," by Lady Gaga


"4ever," by the Veronicas


"Complicated," by Avril Lavigne


The hackathon runs for 24 hours. Here's hoping Farrow will return to serenade us on Sunday morning.
