I guess we should have expected this, or, you know, prayed for it, but Al Roker’s terribly TMI sharting-at-the-White-House confession has been auto-tuned into a sweet jam. It’s less mortifying somehow…
I know, auto-tuning kind of peaked with Antoine Dodson’s “Bed Intruder,” but I think this auto-tuned video of “Bachelor” contestant Courtney Robertson signifies a resurgence of the trend. A very appropriate use of auto-tuning. Favorite thing: Ben as a puppet. Absolutely stinking brilliant. If he ends up with this chick, I am officially boycotting “The Bachelor.” [Mashable]
This weekend, I hightailed it to Washington, D.C., for “The Daily Show
“‘s and “The Colbert Report”‘s Rally To Restore Sanity And/Or Fear
. It was basically a big old party with amazing sign watching. (My personal faves read: “I Had a Tea Party with Your Mama” and “Palin/Snooki 2012.” The crowd was—how do I put it?—packed like sardines, so there was no chance of seeing a Jumbotron unless you were at least six feet tall. The best the rest of us could do was listen. And for the listeners, the highlight of the afternoon was for sure Jon Stewart
‘s monologue. So we’re glad that Auto-Tune The News didn’t waste any time in remixing that shizzle.
