Weird Al Yankovic dons a lab coat and gives us a lesson in the history of Auto-Tune. Like the carbon-based creatures that we are, Auto-Tune has its roots in primordial ooze.

That’s deep.

So forget all the snark you’ve heard about the software. You’ll relearn to respect your elders at the smarting end of Yankovic’s ruler, from Auto-tuned Winston Churchill to that oldy moldy Auto-Tunes over-user, T-Pain.
