Video: Mike Tyson Sounds So Sweet With Autotune

While I'm primarily known for my knowledge on politics, cultural issues and history, there are a lot of other things I know insane amounts of useless information about. Like sports! As I've mentioned in the past, Papa Snob is something of a sports aficionado. (Mama Snob is still staring out of the window wishing for this thing called an "off-season.") Meaning, I think I've seen almost every one of these press conferences referenced in this video at some point in my life. Most of them I watched as highlights on ESPN with my father. And how we laughed and laughed and laughed. Hence taking those moments of athletic braggadocio, autotuning them, scratching/mixing/cutting them up and setting them to a club beat makes me very, very happy. The only imperfection is that this track could have been an epic three hours long if they'd made it just of MLB players and coaches shouting things. It is summer, after all, and Tony LaRussa would probably enjoy another avenue for expressing his displeasure with the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. (YouTube, h/t Deadspin)

@arieswym: DJ Steve Porter (the guy who made the above video) already made that video a while back. It was the original "Press Hop". I just had to subscribe to him on YouTube after I first Stumbled Upon that one.
