The Trump-Clinton video you'll watch for the next few days

Technically Incorrect: If you take some of the footage from the second presidential debate, edit it and put a different soundtrack to it, you get art. Of a sort.

Technically Incorrect offers a slightly twisted take on the tech that's taken over our lives.


They're singing. Really. They're singing.

Where there was no love lost, love can suddenly be found.

Where there was so much darkness, light can suddenly penetrate.

Where there seemed like two people having a positively hateful time, you can discover that they were having the time of their lives.

For reasons perhaps purely related to despair and optimism, Netherlands-based Lucky TV decided to take footage from the second debate -- the one during which Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton would have both dearly love to armed -- and turn it into a romance.

Lucky TV set the whole thing to "The Time Of My Life" from "Dirty Dancing."

Clearly, there's no irony here for an event that caused so many Americans to lose 90 minutes of their time that they'll never get back.

Perhaps the town hall format did, however, create the perfect forum for a pas-de-deux that comprised filthy accusations with dirty, underhand sniping.

Imagine, though if Trump and Clinton had serenaded each other, rather than wished each other would permanently go away -- to jail, for example.

This video, which has already been viewed by almost 100,000 people on YouTube and tens of thousands on Facebook, offers the possibility of idyllic harmony where there is only conflict.

That, of course, makes it comedy.
