This Autotuned Manti Te’o Video is a Classic

Look, I know you’re sick of hearing about Manti Te’o and the dead girlfriend hoax. But trust me, this is worth it.

Remember the “Bed Intruder Song,” in which the “hide yo kids, hide yo wife” guy Antoine Dobson got autotuned? Or the “Double Rainbow Song,” in which that funny hippy’s reaction to a double rainbow got autotuned?

Well, the people behind those viral videos are pretty big now. They even appeared on the Grammy’s a few years ago. But despite their success, they’re still doing what they do best: turning bizarre news stories into autotuned gold.

Their latest work is called “Why, Why, Manti,” which takes the interview Manti Te’o did with Katie Couric last week and turns it into an awesome pop song.

So how is it? It’s pretty good until about the 1:38 mark. Then is gets amazing. Check it out:

I didn’t lie, did I? That was totally worth it.

Nice job again, Schmoyoho.
