Yahoo gives its famous yodel a musical makeover, adapting it to 22 music genres. Listen to these little bits of musical genius and tell us which one you like best.
Even a classic jingle needs a refresh now and then.
As part of a $100 million ad campaign, Yahoo had musicians record
new versions of the famous Yahoo yodel
in 22 musical genres--from disco to ska. The resulting snippets are amazing--in that so-terrible-you-can't-decide-whether-to-stab-your-own-ears-with-a-pen-or-make-these-your-new-ringtone kind of way. At any rate, they've had us cracking up all week, and for this week's Crave Friday Poll, we wanted to invite you to join in on the fun.
So here's a sampling of some of our favorites. Listen to these little bits of musical genius and let us know which one you like best in our poll. We don't want to sway your opinions or anything, but the CNET cubicles have been ringing with (or is that assaulted with?) the sounds of a few editors spontaneously busting out with the final line of "Old Skool 1" at random times. Just sayin'.
Want more? Check out the complete list of revamped yodels here. And remember: Some PC, some prefer the Mac. But if you Yahoo, then we got your back.
