Widely acclaimed video comedy series Auto-Tune the News is a product of YouTube directors The Gregory Brothers, who reflect the banality of American cultural debate by recording voices of politicians and news anchors, then digitally manipulating the recording to make the talking heads sing. The Bros. often add their own characters, as well as extra hands and props to the existing footage. In their twelfth episode, which went live mid-June, Auto-Tune the News tackles the discussion about the effect of market forces on the price of cannabis, should it become legal. Bonus: A look at cable news' nuanced discussion of our our next Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan. Video after the jump (Safe for work, but put some headphones on, just in case).
