YouTube’s Bad Lip Reading has been a pop-art mainstay for years. Don’t be fooled by its grandma-pleasing populism: These quirky videos of celebrities mouthing nonsense remain as lovingly weird as ever. 

Now it does politics. Just watch its seasonal gags with Ted Cruz, Bernie Sanders, and most recently the Democratic National Convention

You grimace a bit when the voice artist does Michelle Obama because he uses stereotypes about black women to land the joke (an urban-inspired “heyyy” is used for Michelle and not, say, Chelsea Clinton). But it’s all gibberish, anyway.
