Joseph Gordon-Levitt Assists the Gregory Brothers With ‘Get Money, Turn Gay’
Fresh off his New Year's Eve collab with Zooey Deschanel, actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt is diving right back into the viral video/song game with The Gregory Brothers, famous for their 'Auto-Tune the News' and 'Bed Intruder' viral vids.
Like 'Saturday Night Live' and 'The Daily Show' before them, bros Gregory and JG-L (who seems to favor suits in his viral vids) are poking fun at the GOP primary by turning sound bites from the early phase of the campaign trail into fodder for music!
Some of the choicest nuggets of rhetorical nonsense have been mined and recycled as they 'Songify the News.' Today's song? 'Get Money, Turn Gay.' It's hilarious and will have you busting a gut, especially if you are following the news and the wannabe politicos.
They make effective use of Auto-Tune to address things like what Newt Gingrich feels about child labor. We couldn't stop looking at the curiously-named Vermin Supreme and his strange, wizard-like hat. John Stossel goes on to say that the kids aren't paying attention when they vote. Perhaps these sorts of entertaining and satirical songs and videos will change that?
You'll find yourself singing "Turning, turning, turning gay" along with the melody. Maybe they are onto something here. Knowledge is power, right? Educate the youth with funny videos and songs so they can make informed voting decisions!
