This Is Why the Internet Exists

Auto-Tune IconAuto-Tune is a piece of software mostly used by less-than-talented singers to improve the sound of their voices. Until recently, that is, when it started being applied to everything from Martin Luther King Jr.’s ‘I Have A Dream’ speech to late-night infomercials.

A few months back, however, a few 20-somethings started putting it to the best use by far, when they created Auto-Tune the News. You can read about Auto-Tune the News at the Time article I linked, but really, just watch the videos. They’re goofy and hilarious, and you’ll be glad you did.

Episode #5 may be my favorite (particularly Katie Couric’s bit), but they’re all great, and Episode #8 is a work of psychotic poetry with real celebrity appearances. Best of all, if you start watching now, you’ll still be able to say you knew about it before it hit the mainstream.
