"Joe Biden and his press secretary, Darren Criss, educate the public on shotgun use while politicians and pundits broadcast warnings of flying robots and spies."



"We will not bomb Jane Fonda."

Damm!

That is so cool, but I'd like to know how they got their voices to singing...'cuz they really do sound like the people they represent.

You can spend some time browsing through the other vids, laughs guaranteed.

Here's one the best political songified vids, the final Obama - Romney debate, ala old school video game.

Auto-tune;  "Auto-Tune was initially created by Andy Hildebrand, an engineer working for Exxon. Hildebrand developed methods for interpreting seismic data and subsequently realized that the technology could be used to detect, analyze, and modify the pitch in audio files"

It sort of snuck into the music industry as a cheat for lazy singers. Cher was the first person (I think) to deliberately use it in a song (Do you believe).

The guys at schmoyoho have gone one step further and created an app for your smart phone where you can songify any speech.
