What If The News Was Auto-Tuned?

Auto-Tune the News #1: march madness. economic woes. pentagon budget cuts.

Interviewers, sportscasters, and vice presidents alike break into song to report important news. The players include:

  • Newt Gingrich (on nuclear disarmament)
  • Robert Gates (on cutting the Pentagon budget)
  • Jim Nantz (on March Madness)
  • Joe Biden (on the economic situation)
  • Wayne Ellington (on how it feels to win)

Not sure what’s worse – this or the way it’s used in most pop songs……

Jim Nantz (on March Madness)
Joe Biden (on the economic situation)
Wayne Ellington (on how it feels to win)

Lyrics:

MG: Mr. Gingrich, what do you think about Obama wanting to cut down on nuclear weapons? In the key of C. And…go!

NG: Uh, I just think that it’s very dangerous to have a fantasy foreign policy
And it can get you in enormous trouble

MG: What’s wrong with fantasy?
I like fantasy and I live in the sea

RG: We must rebalance this department’s programs
In order to institutionalize and finance our capabilities

SG: Yeah, forget about the jets;
Use our super soakers, get al quaeda wet

JN: Tar Heels: rolling on to number 1
Another convincing Carolina victory

SG: Ooh, that’s cool, but it ain’t time to pop the hennessy

JN: Michigan State: heading to the national championship game
Your team responded late here, coach, how did you do it?

MG: Three words: Vi ag ra.

JB: There will continue to be job losses
The remainder of this year
The question is will they continually go down
Before they begin to rebound
Before they begin to rebound
Will they go do-do-do-down
Before they begin to rebound

And now it’s my pleasure to present the 2009
National Championship Trophy
To Coach Roy williams and the North Carolina Tar Heels
You can just tell the unity you had
It’s something very special
And we saw it on the floor tonight

SG: Oh yeah—
Michigan thought we was playing some football
Lions’ stadium; they played like the Lions
Throwin interceptions in the first down
Watchin us dunk on their ass
Goin home cryin

Congratulations Wayne
I know you’re emotional
Talk about what this feels like

WE: Feels great. You know,
You never know what this feeling feels like
Until you experience it.
It’s something that you really can’t explain

SG: Yeah, believe in your dreams
MG: Yeah, you know you can never explain the unexplainable

One thought on “What If The News Was Auto-Tuned?

  1. #2 in the series (and I hope there'll be a #3) is even better, it's got some amazing harmonization. Love how Antares are actively promoting Auto-Tune as the "T-Pain/Cher effect" and how all the vocal haterz are just helping to advertise it more. 🙂
