    auto-tune #3 ( is also wonderful, but auto-tune the news #6 is the best of the series! a climate bill, sarah palin, pharmaceuticals, and michael jackson waking up dead … how can you go wrong?

    p.s. does michael jackson waking up dead count as a zombie?

    Brilliant, that is a classic, auto-tuning the lecture/class would be a logical extension of this series now wouldn’t it? :).

    As for your question, Michael Jackson being a Zombie would mean that he is dead, which we all know is not true. He is in Brazil drinking from an umbrella drink with everyone else who never died.

    I agree that 5 & 6 are the shining stars in the bunch. The entire climate change bill opening of #6 is probably the best remixing they’ve done, but that one falls a little flat in the middle, only to rise again in the end with the waking up dead re-edit. 5 stays strong pretty much from start to finish, & takes a completely illogical debate (smoking lettuce) & turns it into uproarious self-parody.

    Either way, this is my kind of copyright playground. The way these are created is absolutely genius, their political poo-pooing almost nonchalant. I love everything about the idea behind these creations, I’m dying for them to make more. Thanks for the bavainclusion!

    For me, #5 gets almost Beck-like in it’s brilliance. The ones I’d seen before seemed more Jib-Jabby — but I think i will try them again.
