Really? Microsoft CES keynote goes auto-tune, has Tweet choir

YouTube/networkworld

(CBS) - In honor of Microsoft's final keynote address at the International Consumer Electronics Show, the company created an auto-tune completion of past keynotes.

Yep, you read correctly. The video was filled with snippets of Bill Gates and Steve Ballmer delivering 15-years worth of keynote addresses. This is strange, right? The two men aren't exactly known for their hipness.

Another weird performance was by the Tweet Choir, who performed a bizarre gospel rendition of geeky phrases and CES news.

"This automated Bill Gates thing is hilarious," sang one of the choir members. Really? Because we sort of thought it was awkward.

Anyone else think Microsoft was trolling CES? Well played, Ballmer.
