Auto-generated Named Birthday Videos? June 11, 2016 1:14 PM   Subscribe

I'm looking for a link in a comment (which I thought I'd bookmarked/favourited) to an auto-generated overblown "Happy Birthday" video on YouTube. There were innumerable near-identical further ones for a wide range of names and also relationship-titles (Brother-in-Law, Daughter, etc). I think it was posted on either MetaTalk or MeFi, and certainly in the last 3-4 months. All help appreciated. Both memory and google-fu are failing me terribly today.

This channel on youtube has a bunch of searchable names and relationships. You can also find them by going to youtube and typing "Happy Birthday [Name]" in the search bar.

That's exactly it VioletU, I and my victimsfriends thank you ever so much!

There's also, which offers free live recordings of their oddball original birthday song for a staggering variety of names. This AV Club article goes into more detail about it.

If you were wondering, this is the first place that "EpicHappyBirthdays" has been mentioned on MetaFilter. Maybe there was a link to a specific video or two, or it seemed like an appropriately MetaFilterish thing to find.

Near the tail end of the 10th Birthday Party for Metafilter Favorites, when most people had already gone home, I did indeed start belting out some nonsense on the front lawn.

I see you favorited it then, so perhaps that was the comment?

Culprit discovered! That must be it, thanks for posting then and now Kabanos!

Update for the mildly curious, the link went down very well with the person to whom I sent it.
