Finally, someone decided to combine the audio hijinx of Bad Lip Reading videos with one of my favorite pastimes--making fun of stock footage--and the results speak for themselves (well, with the voices dubbed in).
"Getty Dubs" is the latest from a YouTube crew called Getty Critics, which formed this past summer. Up until now, the group only released a couple of short snippets of Getty stock footage with funny sounds added in. The new video, however, adds the previous material to an abundance of goofily juxtaposed riches.
"There's a reason stock footage doesn't have sound," a caption reads at the start of the video. The following 4:20 set about proving that statement correct. Any time a person opens his or her mouth or appears to be making noise in these scenes--which are often used in commercials to evoke the general feeling of a product--proves ample opportunity for the dubbers to wreak some havoc.
While adding rabid dog-noises to a scene of a family brushing their teeth is just silly, though, adding excited wheezing to a woman open-mouth staring at a computer screen shines a light on the weirdness of what stock footage seems meant to convey.
