R2 with a Voice

The Auralnauts have just put up a video of several scenes from the original Star Wars movie with R2-D2 having the ability to speak in words instead of just beeps and whistles.  It really adds a charming new spin to the forty-year-old movie.

EDIT: Youtube took the video down due to a false copyright claim against the Auralnauts, but you can still see the video on Facebook:

The Power of Copper

Nothing beats a solid lampooning of a ridiculous product that purports to essentially work by magic (e.g. healing you with magnets, extracting toxins through your skin with body wraps, etc).  That’s where the sorely underrated Auralnauts come in:

The joints in your hands are achy and useless.
Using your legs produces an unreasonable amount of heat.
Your spine has been targeted for destruction by an unknown assailant.
There is only one solution to all of your problems.
Introducing: COPPER!

And, we cannot forget these other great products: Zoomies (“Welcome to the future, Mr. Cool Dude.”) and BEAMZ by FLO (“BEAMZ is an instrument so advanced, it’s made out of lasers.”).

The Auralnauts just don’t put out enough content.  Maybe if more people bought some of their music?…

If you’re curious, here are the original commercials for the aforementioned ridiculous products for comparison:
