    Stumbled across this from a DIGG feed. Com'on folks, (especially anti-Obama folks), take a grin and giggle break.

    Songify The News Helps Obama Drop His Mixtape

    How the heck do they get the lips synched so well - you know that isn't what those politicians really said!

      I love these videos. There's whole youtube channels dedicated to this. Some of the best ones involve football players.

        I know I will probably be sucked into another time-consuming black hole - but this one was so cute I guess I have to check out the others too. Oh well. Grins and Giggles are good for us.

          No black holes, this was a nice one for the funny bones.

      Like it. Amazing what a pitch adjuster can do.

        Damn! Now I gotta go find out what a pitch adjuster is.

          A pitch adjuster is software that allows the user to change the pitch and timbre of any recorded sound. So they took the recording of Obama's speech, spliced together the sections they wanted, then ran it though a pitch adjuster to create the melody. Then they synced the pitch adjusted recording with the parts of the video where he actually spoke those words, and viola!

          So it is actually what they said, just in a different order and at a different pitch.

          (this is also how bad singers get to sound like good singers)

            Thanks Don W, You saved me a little reading. Looks like a lot of work goes into making these Songify clips. Still great for a chuckle though.

    Yes it is, GA!  Those were actual sound bites!
      All is well, now!
    We can just leave it at that!
