My friends and I did this in high school with an LP of sound effects set on 16RPM. I can still remember how bad my belly hurt from laughing.
No you didn’t do this. You slowed everything down which made things sound lower but last muuuuch longer. This, on the other hand is the correct speed, but with the pitch lowered. HUGE difference. (Ever wonder why Alvin and the chipmunks sound really high but are not singing at the speed of light?)
/preaching about pitch vs. speed
Didn’t they sing slowly so they just needed to speed up the recording?
Sounds like someone on drugs bursting into tears during sex.
Yeah, I wasn’t amused so much as very, very uncomfortable, listening to that…
I thought I recognized it. Very interesting sound. I like the gurgling parts at the end.
Thanks internet (and Mark). I’ve not laughed like that in a while! :)
…meaning, it made me laugh… whatever… i’ll just go play the clip again
If Peter Griffin stubbed both knees.
I was in actual hysterics.
This was so disturbing to me that I had to stop it 1/2 way through. Freaky!
Oh man I shouldn’t have listened to that first thing in the morning…
It’s like a cross between someone laughing while trying to throw up. Maybe on drugs too.
Interesting how the communication of distress appears to be so pitch-specific. I wish that we could hear the “original” and compare.
Fake. (You can tell by the pixels).
But really, I’d have to hear the original baby to be convinced.
it sounds like me taking a dump after eating mexican….
More like taking a dump after eating English. Mexican food doesn’t make you constipated.
True, but it has a tendency to burn going in and coming out.
Thought I’d take this chance link to my blog post about auto-tuning a crying baby:
