Billy Mays Is A Sad Robot

[flashvideo file=/wp-content/uploads/2009/03/billymaysrobot.flv height=350 width=500 /]

There is something about this Kaboom commercial that is filtered through auto-tune that I really enjoy. It was created by CastOutTheSelf, and although it may not be quite as funny as Jabo0ody’s dubs, I like it better.

This Kaboom commercial is apparently run at 140 BPM. I wonder if there have been and studies done to determine the perfect beats per minute for shysters to use for there sing-song pitches? Does the lyrical styling of Billy May’s script help us tune into the commercial?

  2. I don’t think that’s autotune. Sounds more like a vocoder. Autotune wouldn’t filter the frequencies so heavily, and you wouldn’t be able to hear a musical carrier wave behind it.

    Still awesome though.
