It's Not the Real Thing: Coca-Cola Jingles Composed by AI?

Artificial intelligence will soon do more than we could possibly imagine --- including write jingles for the beloved Coca-Cola brand.

"I'm reading an article yesterday about Coca-Cola and how Coca-Cola now has a digital jingle machine. So when they're writing their music and their jingles, it's all artificial intelligence. They're, like, starting to get rid of people," Glenn said Tuesday on radio.

Can AI compose music better than humans? Glenn played a few examples on air. See what you think.

Listen to this segment from The Glenn Beck Program:

STU: We're going to get to the point where computers are just doing everything. From acting to --

GLENN: So I'm reading an article yesterday about Coca-Cola and how Coca-Cola now is digital -- has a digital jingle machine. So when they're writing their music and their jingles, it's all artificial intelligence. They're like starting to get rid of people.

Did -- Sarah, did you pull any of those examples? Go ahead and play this.

(music)

GLENN: Okay. So --

STU: These are the first examples, right?

GLENN: This is the first example of CGI -- or, I'm sorry, not CGI. AI-written music.

(music)

STU: You might think, oh, that just sounds like normal piano playing. That's a big deal, when you don't have a human being doing it.

GLENN: Right. I mean, how do you even teach it to -- I mean, garbage in, garbage out. And apparently they've got this down. It's running classical music, pop music jingles.

(music)

GLENN: Now, this isn't so hard. Because it's like -- it's like jazz that you don't understand. You're like, okay. That doesn't really work.

(music)

GLENN: I'm not that impressed. I mean, when I -- this is actually -- this piece is the first AI constructed piece I believe, ever.

STU: It sounds like people playing violin when they're really cold, like their arms are shaking.

(music)

GLENN: Yeah. So I don't know how Coke is using it. I was reading an article on the coming of AI yesterday. And it said all these different companies. And it said Coke is using all kinds of AI technology to write music and jingles for the company now. I'm like, "When did this happen?" What -- really?

You're going to be so shocked to find out we've been CGI and AI for a very long time. And intelligence is not really the operative word there. But it's artificial something that we've been doing. Back in just a minute.

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.

Glenn Beck: Why MLK's pledge of NONVIOLENCE is the key to saving America

Listen to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s pledge of nonviolence and really let it sink in: "Remember always that the nonviolent movement seeks justice and reconciliation — not victory."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck shared King's "ten commandments" of nonviolence and the meaning behind the powerful words you may never have noticed before.

"People will say nonviolent resistance is a method of cowards. It is not. It takes more courage to stand there when people are threatening you," Glenn said. "You're not necessarily the one who is going to win. You may lose. But you are standing up with courage for the ideas that you espouse. And the minute you engage in the kind of activity that the other side is engaging in, you discredit the movement. You discredit everything we believe in."

Take MLK's words to heart, America. We must stand with courage, nonviolently, with love for all, and strive for peace and rule of law, not "winning."

Conservatives are between a rock and a hard place with Section 230 and Big Tech censorship. We don't want more government regulation, but have we moved beyond the ability of Section 230 reforms to rein in Big Tech's rising power?

Rachel Bovard, Conservative Partnership Institute's senior director of policy, joined the Glenn Beck radio program to give her thoughts and propose a possibly bipartisan alternative: enforcing our existing antitrust laws.

Dan Bongino, host of The Dan Bongino Show, is an investor in Parler — the social media platform that actually believes in free speech. Parler was attacked by Big Tech — namely Amazon, Apple, and Google — earlier this week, but Bongino says the company isn't giving up without a fight. In fact, he says, he's willing to go bankrupt over this one.

Dan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he calls a "smear" campaign behind the scenes, and how he believes we can move forward from Big Tech's control.

"You have no idea how bad this was behind the scenes," Dan told Glenn. "I know you're probably thinking ... well, how much worse can the attack on Parler have gotten than three trillion-dollar companies — Amazon, Apple, and Google — all seemingly coordinated to remove your business from the face of the Earth? Well, behind the scenes, it's even worse. I mean, there are smear campaigns, pressure campaigns ... lawyers, bankers, everyone, to get this company ... wiped from the face of the earth. It's incredible."

Dan emphasized that he would not give up without a fight, because what's he's really fighting for is the right to free speech for all Americans, regardless of their political opinions, without fear of being banned, blacklisted, or losing jobs and businesses.

"I will go bankrupt. I will go absolutely destitute before I let this go," he said. "I have had some very scary moments in my life and they put horse blinders on me. I know what matters now. It's not money. It's not houses. It's none of that crap. It's this: the ability to exist in a free country, where you can express your ideas freely."
