Because it’s Monday, you meed an algorithmic mashup of Morrissey and a P90X workout

You don’t need this. No one does. But it’s nevertheless interesting to examine this odd mashup created by “a combination of Morrissey’s words and customer reviews of P90X on Amazon.”

According to Noisey, this a creation of an outfit called Botnik Studios. It works by scraping lyrics (in this case from Morrissey) as well as customer reviews of P90X, assembling them into a song. Botnik’s Jame Brew then took the resulting combination of works and sang them in the style of Morrissey/The Smiths.

What we end up with is Morrissey proxy singing a review of P90X. Thanks–I think–to Fouad for the link.
