Why Joe Biden Should Have Been A Pop Star: The 2012 Election In Song

If you're one of the millions of people who watched auto-tuned versions of the 2012 presidential debates on YouTube, then you've seen the work of The Gregory Brothers. The Brooklyn group best known for turning viral internet videos into catchy hits such as the "Bed Intruder Song" and "Double Rainbow Song" pledged to "Songify" each of the debates leading up to this year's election.

Using pitch-correcting technology, the group turned the candidates' speech into music resulting in hilarious (and highly viewed) videos. We talk with brothers Andrew Gregory and Evan Gregory -- one half of the four-person group -- about how they were able to deliver on their promise, often within 24 hours of the debates themselves. Plus, we find out why the group has such an affinity for Vice President Joe Biden. 

Guests:

Andrew Gregory and Evan Gregory
