Oh no! They autotuned Jesus.

Post by percussion boy » Wed Dec 21, 2011 10:03 am

It was playing in the Safeway last night, clear as a bell -- "Away in a Manger," sung with a country twang and autotuned like a teen idol.

Religion is a personal matter, but autotuned Christmas is just wrong. Hearing it gave me the most terrible feeling, like throwing up cheap wine.

Hope it doesn't happen to you.

hand-made version to raise money for manufacturing... kind of like kickstarter, but you get a fully functional item now

This reminds me of that old Weekend Update skit on SNL with Norm MacDonald...

"Kenny G released a new Christmas album this season.. it's called Happy Birthday, Jesus, hope you like crap!" :)

The version of "Manger" I heard really was autotuned to a T-Pain level -- the Singing Android effect.

Bad move . . . God don't like ugly.
