In case you didn’t know, I love Mr. T. In fact, I pity the fo’ who does love Mr. T. He is such a cool guy and we can all agree he has a pretty rad haircut. He even makes World of Warcraft seem cooler. (As impossible as that is…) He did a couple of commercials for them featuring his sweet mohawk grenade. Then, someone did a sweet parody using auto tune and it went from great, to great and hilarious. Please enjoy the auto tuned edition and the original videos below.

Here is the autotuned version.

Here is the original.

So, what is this Autotuned effect and what does Weird Al Yankovic have to do with anything? Well, autotuner is a unique beast in the music world. I don’t know too much about it, but I could write about the subject. Instead, I will let another one of my childhood heroes, Weird Al, tell you much more than I could. Enjoy.

Well, there you have it. I hope you got a giggle, an education, and bit cooler seeing Mr. T. in two videos. You’re welcome, it was my pleasure to share this with you.
