"Songify the News" with Darren Criss, shotguns and flying robots

(CBS News) Did you know that Vice President Joe Biden could sing? Did you know that he's buddies with Darren Criss from "Glee"? Bet not, but the spoof video above, produced by The Gregory Brothers, shall enlighten you! So prepare to be educated on topics like why people should buy shotguns and why you could get blown up by a drone in this bang-up of news music video and auto-tune-tastic duet featuring Biden, Criss and many more!

Though Biden's not the only politician to get the auto-tune treatment, I feel like he really stood out with his "debut musical performance." The video goes on to songify other politicians and news personalities -- including Sen. John McCain and Bill O'Reilly. And please enjoy a Kit-Kat break to appreciate the mandatory Congressional chocolate break around 2:17, in addition to the continual Jane Fonda references. So, what the heck is going on in this video? It may take you a few viewings to venture a guess, but even if you don't get it, it's sure to make you laugh. And never forget to shoot two warning shots!
