What if Obama and Romney were video game characters, and the national conventions were where they did battle? And what if it wasn't just any video game, but a super catchy music game, where the candidates crooned and harmonized as they amassed a high score of hope-mentions and implications of faith? Well, I'd probably watch, that's what.
You may not have heard of The Gregory Brothers, but surely you've heard of their series, 'Auto-Tune The News,' in which they turn pundits and politicians into inadvertent music stars. (My favorite one is still Episode 6, where Michael Jackson's lawyer sings a moving ode to waking up dead.)
Check out this latest, video-game inspired musical video by the Brothers, created especially for the New York Times. It is good.
