If You Want to Learn About North Dallas But Are Too Lazy to Read, This Video Is For You

This is literally a nine-minute video, posted Dec. 6, of a computer reading the “North Dallas” Wikipedia page. I don’t understand why it exists, but the YouTube user who posted it – WikiPlays – has made 117,749 other similar videos, so there’s obviously some sort of market. Is it for blind people? Lazy people? Bored people?

Recent other videos include a spellbinding “Nemom Railway Station” reading, a tearjerking interpretation of the “Raising of Lazarus,” and a 10-minute piece about “secrecy,” which sort-of goes against the whole idea of secrecy. Have a computer read you your favorite Wikipedia page here.
