one of my favorite aspects of Youtube is the existence of creative remixes of all kinds of things, almost everything has a dubstep remix, a metal remix and an autotune remix, right now I would like to focus on a specific type of remixes on Youtube, Remixed News reports/interviews, because people on the news are weird and they catch the attention of the internet, some go wildly viral and end up with millions of views, here I will be sharing some of my favorites:
1) Antoine Dodson :
The Original [Link]
the most famous and popular of this type of video is the “Hide yo kids, Hide yo Wife” guy Antoine Dodson, the words were remixed into a song and it got him famous and I think he made enough money to buy a house in L.A. and he made live performances (like at the webbys awards ceremony).
2) Jacob Isom
The Original [Link]
Jacob Isom is a 20 something skater guy, he saved a copy of the holy Quran from being burnt in an angry protest in a public park in Amarillo Texas.
Anyway this guy is a hero for taking away a Quran from being burnt, and the Internet made a remix of jacob Isom when he was on the news for being a man of honor and showing respect to all religions.
3) Diana from Kansas
The Remix [Long version here]
The original [Link]
this lady was in a grocery store when it was robbed, she’s very eccentric and describes what happened and how her “daddy” taught her good.
check this post I made a long time ago on her, including more remixes [Link]
4) Sweet Brown
The Remix & Original in one Video:
for only the remix click Here
sweet brown is one of the most recent meme on this list, she’s a middle aged (I think ) woman who was in a fire, her accent and facial expression was what makes this remix so great, her song along with Jacob Isom’s often get stuck on my mind for hours and hours hehehe.
