AI is taking over in the strangest of ways…

It’s no secret that AI is all the rage these days. I, for one, have no clue how the full roll out of conscious or semi-conscious robots is going to go, but one thing I do know for sure is that people are already doing some strange things with this new technology.

Exhibit A: Making Johnny Cash sing “Barbie Girl”.

Yep, you heard that right, someone took the great Man In Black and made him “sing” Aqua.

With a new Barbie movie being released next week, a social media account called “There I Ruined It” decided to see if pink is the new black, putting the prom night staple to the music of “Folsom Prison Blues.”

A little of one, a bit of the other and voilà, you’ve got a confusing but very entertaining piece of content.

At first sight, I was ready to get mad about this. Honest;y, I wanted to get mad.

But then I listened the first time…

And a second…

Then a third…

And now here I am with this tune stuck in my head and if I have to suffer that fate, than so do you.

I wonder how Johnny would feel about this.

And just because it’s already stuck in your head… the original:
