‘Songify the News’ takes on Donald Trump with the help of Hannah Hart
Presidential candidates, soccer stars, and Parliament all get the Auto-Tune treatment.
The most recent edition of Songify the News kicks off with the Trump announcement, and the media surrounding it, with a help of YouTuber Hannah Hart, who carries a mean tune.
Later the video features John Green and Nat Wolf, who are busy promoting the forthcoming film Paper Towns. They duet on “Sleep Over Tonight,” the titular ode to an hypothetical slumber party with Chris Christie, Mitt Romney, and Marco Rubio. The clip also features surprise Auto-Tune star Bill O’Reilly crooning about Ted Cruz’s BuzzFeed visit.
With the political season just getting into full swing, there’s going to be a ton more opportunities for songification through 2016. Buckle up.
