Can Government Songify Video?

by / May 15, 2013


News footage and other videos that have been songified are virally popular online. The technique is also called auto-tune, where voice pitch is adjusted to make a metallic-like sound that seems complements fun beats. 

Just how hard is it to do? Can we do more of this in government to get our videos watched? The Gregory Brothers' version of President Obama's state of the union address was a hit. 

I downloaded two iOS apps, Songify and I Am T-Pain to see what it's all about. Turns out that songifying audio is harder than it looks! Delve into combining video in addition to audio is surely even more complex. Do you know of anyone who has done this well in government? Do you think we can get away with it and not look like we're just wasting time? Let me know in the comments!
