I love stuff like that. You know, like those Bad Lip Reading videos on YouTube. Those are like gold to me. I could watch them for an unreasonably long amount of time.
I'm going to assume you can too, so here is another:
The humor is in the absurdity (i.e. Adrian Peterson's joyful acceptance of an orange peanut).
Again, I could watch these for a very, very long time.
I spent yesterday at home sick, so I was able to put that theory to test. Video after video I watched on my phone. There was no end to these lip reading videos - I didn't even come close to finishing them. Ah, the glorious art of superimposing different voices onto existing video. My sick day would have been dull without it.
It's crazy how you can make anyone out to say absolutely anything just by splicing and overlaying audio.
I started thinking about that in real life though - about how its really easy to make a "Bad Lip Reading" video out of the people you come in contact with everyday.
What I mean by that is I think its easy to superimpose our own ideas, summations and judgments onto people. It's easy to construe the worst about people or to assign motives. It's easy to "lip dub" our own thoughts about people over their lives.
I can create a monster out of person with the same ease as making Adrian Peterson say "Orange Peanut".
Even if it's not the truth.
But instead of making a Bad Lip Reading out of someone else today, try to eliminate the voice-over and see them for who they really are. That's a challenge for me, and maybe for most of us. It's easy to make a Bad Lip Reading. It's harder to listen to and view the truth about a person.
So - YouTube Bad Lip reading= funny, enjoyable, encouraged. Real Life Bad Lip Reading= bad, hurtful, discouraged.
