Auto-Tune what? The News!
Ever heard of Auto-Tune the News? Now you have. Basically what The Gregory Brothers do is take serious newscasts (or other videos that seem to get the most hits because of their humor) and make them viral. They add the rap-technique “auto-tune” to the voices within the video and create beats that can conclude the video into a very catchy song.
Auto-Tune the News has posted several videos that are mainly news based (Obama speaches, CNN newscasts, etc.) Although, these are not the only videos The Gregory Brothers work with. They have also auto-tuned local newscasts from different parts of the U.S., clips that have gotten airtime in popular culture (see the Cute Kids and Kanye) and other already viral, top hit YouTube videos.
The Gregory Brothers have caught onto recent fame due to the video of The Bed Intruder Song (see above). This video even helped the male, Antoine Dodson, reach e-fame. This video had over 24,000,000+ hits and was on the top of the iTunes charts when the song was first released. If you haven’t checked them out before, do so here. Trust me, you’ll enjoy these videos.
