Nicely timed to newsjack the Oscars, the team over at Urgent Genius launched a very clever app called 'The Artistifier' that enables users to turn any YouTube video into a black and white film, complete with captions and a jazzy soundtrack in the style of this year's biggest Oscar winning hit.
Your own end results might not all be Oscar worthy, but it is a lot of fun. My favourite so far is without a doubt this Ninja Monkey. Even if it is an Orangutan.
This is a great example of a playful news jacking opportunity and kudos to Urgent Genius for having fun with it.
