WASHINGTON, February 24, 2012 – Using Autotune technology the creative and capricious The Gregory Brothers, and that would be Evan, Andrew, Michael and sister (in-law) Sarah are giving a lyrical voice to politicos and celebs alike.
“We are taking a world that lacks a song and giving it one,” says Andrew Gregory.
Asked where their sense of comedy comes from, Gregory says that the parents, on all sides are “amateur joke tellers,” and “pretty hysterical.” One can only image the family Sunday dinners.
The Gregory Brothers tour de force is taking the all too routine and boring sound bytes of the day, creating a fast paced mosaic of sound and image that is funny, and biting.
Seriously, this is not meant to be taken seriously.
Their latest offering, Legalize Everything features Senator Junkie Einstein (L-SD) the alter ego of brother Michael Gregory, the youngest of the group. Senator Junkie Einstein’s views are extreme liberal. As for the Gregory Brothers, “We are so far left, we are right; sometimes we are so right, we are left and other times we are so far in the middle, that we are exactly in the middle.”
“Senator Junkie Einstein has a long history in our Congress,” says Gregory. “A lot of people are unfamiliar with him because he is from South Dakota, so he does not get a lot of attention, but he has some really libertarian views and he wants to express them. Katie Couric had him on to talk about his views. “
“Senator Junkie Einstein is always late to everything and they have been talking for months about a late entry into the Presidential race, but he might be a little too late for that, but I am glad he is fighting the good fight.”
Asked how Couric felt being a target of their kitsch humor, Gregory says “One time I had the pleasure of meeting Katie Couric she gave me a big hug.” So obviously the prime time anchor is taking it with good humor, and so should you.
“Legalize Everything” is their latest video effort. Posted to You Tube yesterday it is quickly growing traction to their channel.
In this video, Senator Junkie Einstein joins the Presidential candidates Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum, Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul on the Florida debate stage in a rousing song and dance ditty centered around the “legalization of everything” debate.
“Ron Paul did the choreography, because he says it best and when he challenged the bike race, to prove his fitness there was no doubt he could handle the physical challenges of choreographer,” Gregory says. “As a member of the chorus, which is very important, Mitt Romney did a really spectacular job.”
Remember, it is all in fun. And not endorsed by any candidate, other than Senator Junkie Einstein, if he throws his raccoon-skin cap into the race.
