YouTube adds backing music

John Moe Apr 19, 2012

Your videos are boring and stupid, says YouTube. Kind of. I guess. I mean, I presume that’s why YouTube added the option of adding backing music to your stupid videos of cats or your baby or whatever. There’s also a simple sound mixer to go with the 150,000 tracks available for scoring. Personally, I think you should add the Jaws theme to every video you post because any video is infinitely more exciting if you think there are SHARKS NEARBY JUST WAITING TO ATTACK.
