Maybe you've seen this little gem floating around the interwebs: When Justin Bieber's "U Smile" is slowed down by 800% it sounds just like Icelandic post rockers Sigur Rós.

And you thought that kid was a bratty little douchenozzle because of this stupid haircut!

(Or the way he fucked over a fan by tweeting his cell number.)

Well, guess what, with the aid of sophisticated audio production software he can sound marginally talented.

Wonder if Sigur Rós sped up by 800% sounds like Biebs?

Well, umm, sorta. Here's a track without vocals.

If someone can dub the Biebster singing above it we'll know for sure.

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
