I laughed so hard at this. What are your thoughts?

Agreed. With that kind of introduction to a link you can count on me never looking at it. Now I'm certain it's dumb.

That's not really a funny video other than the weird guy - you want a funny video you have to check out the "auto-tune the news" version of that exact same interview - now THAT is some fucking funny shit.

What about this has anything to do with Suthurn people?

What am I missing. I started the video and it is about a woman (almost) being raped. I fail to see the fun in that, but hey that is just me. Sandwurm88/Sole man ... you are a fucking ass hole.

There's nothing funny about this video other than that one guy they interview has some pretty strange mannerisms.

There is a funny version of this same new story where someone remixes the video and applies a lot of FX to the audio, and adds a backing track, turns the whole thing into an actually funny music video.

I totally fail to see what's funny about the un-remixed version though, or what exactly about it is supposed to make sense to southern people more than anyone else...

you mean the video posted here is not this one ?


And the woman was not raped; she found some bloke in her bed, and he ran away...

Still don't see the point of showing the original without the autotune version.

That's exactly what worries me about his post - he thinks it was funny before it was auto-tuned and remixed.

Also, maybe I'm going out on a limb here, but just going by stereotypes (which yes I know are not accurate) he said "southern people will appreciate" and it's a video of black people talking kinda funny - does anyone else get the same impression I got from that? Or am I just being ridiculous?

Or - maybe the goof just meant to post the auto-tuned version and messed up, and for some reason thinks that southern people like auto-tuned music more than northern people? WTF?

I'm so confused by all of this. :?

It really is magical. I love how good of a job they did messing with the timing as well, and then lining up the video to the altered timing, brilliant! :D

Ahh yes, the Bed Intruder video. That guy has an iPhone app now, a call-in phone line to "console victims of sexual violence" and about six other ludicrous projects....
