The Gregory Brothers are an Auto-Tuning Success

The Gregory Brothers 1 of 8

In 2010, Diane Radcliff found herself caught in a robbery at a Shell station in Kansas City, Missouri. Just a few days later, she found herself all over the internet in a YouTube video called 'Backin' Up.' Her fame can be attributed to the zany American band, The Gregory Brothers.

The Gregory Brothers turn regular conversations and news stories into funny, catchy, kiddy-style jams, thanks to the help of auto-tuning, a pitch-correcting package that, according to the New York Times, "can make vocals sound like an android recorded through an electric fan."

Take a look at these Gregory Brothers' videos for a little afternoon pick me up.
