Here’s Barack Obama Singing the Pokémon Theme Song, Because Why Not [Video]There's literally nothing I can say here to add to the glory that is the President of the United States, Barack Obama, singing the Pokémon theme song. Yes, it's technically just an amalgamation of different speeches and the like in order to approximate the theme song, but this is about as close as I'll ever get to this really happening.

Google Translate Will Give You a New Perspective on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air Theme Song
So, you think you know the theme song to hit 90s sitcom The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air? Well, you've probably got a point -- after all, it's one of the most ubiquitous TV themes of the last several decades, and you'd be hard-pressed to have grown up in the last 20 years and not at least be able to fake knowing the tune. The musicians of CDZA, though, are offering up some new interpretations of the theme through the magic of Google Translate, though, parsing the lyrics into languages like Mandarin Chinese and Hindi, then translating it back into English in a rather entertaining manner.

Change the shape of your mouth and it changes the pitch of the whistle. But that's not the important part. The important part is that your typical, consumer model nose flute, is neon colored and plastic, so when you hold it up to your face, it's not unlike holding up the end of your nose to look like a little piggy. That's not the only option of course. If you need your hands free, you can wear it with a strap, resulting in a nuanced, fake pig-snout, Hannibal Lector look. Did I mention it sounds sort of like the wheezing of a stuffed up, out of breath asthmatic prancing through a pollen smog? Well, it does. Kind of like a recorder. Makes you wonder, what is the best possible use for such a unique instrument. That's right: embarrassing covers of theme songs and songs from 30 years ago.
Nose fluting certainly isn't all the rage (yet), but if you search the annals of YouTube there are some lovely, lovely hidden gems to be discovered, and that's just what we've done. Check out some soul-wrenchingly beautiful covers of "Stayin' Alive," the James Bond, Mario and Star Wars themes and more after the jump.Read on...
