The Auto-Correct Song by Ben Champion is an exceptionally well-executed production detailing the perils of typing-related mistakes.

Hilarious, and now available for download on iTunes, this is a parody song with surprisingly high-quality sound and lyrics. The ballad addresses a multitude of potential misunderstandings caused by clumsy fingers on iPhones and similar touchscreen devices. In particular, the clip addresses relationship issues that might arise from mistyping, using some fairly foul language. The video is visually fairly simple, mostly focusing on Ben Champion playing at his piano and in a sound recording studio. Given the popularity of Auto-Correct as a means for entertainment (many blogs about mistyping have gone viral,) it’s no surprise that this is equally popular and well-received.

Beautifully simple, incredibly relatable and destined for viral stardom, the Auto-Correct song is a huge hit. Stats for Tech Issue Ballads Trending: Older & Chilly
