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.

Protests following the fatal police shooting of Walter Wallace Jr quickly devolved into violence, rioting, and looting in Philadelphia, and BlazeTV's Elijah Schaffer was there to document what the mainstream media won't. But while filming the carnage inside a Five Below on Tuesday, Elijah was surrounded and attacked by looters.

Elijah joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to detail his experience and to explain why mainstream media efforts to downplay the violence just show that independent media has never been more important.

"Unfortunately, [the attack] escalated from one person to about a dozen very quickly," Elijah explained. "I'm actually really happy to be alive. Because in that same shopping center, right there, there was a 15-year-old girl who was shot, according to reports. And I heard multiple gunshots throughout the night. Another individual is reported to have heard a gunshot as well, so we try to confirm. I watched people get pummeled beyond belief."

Glenn asked Elijah to respond to mainstream media claims that conservatives are exaggerating the looting and violence in Philadelphia.

"It's so funny to hear people that aren't there try to counter what we're reporting," Elijah replied.

In the final days before the 2020 election, President Donald Trump is gaining among black voters, particularly men, because his record of accomplishments "speaks for itself" and the "façade" that President Trump is a racist "just doesn't ring true," argued sports columnist Jason Whitlock on "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday.

Jason, who recently interviewed the president at the White House for OutKick.com, shared his thoughts on why he believes many black Americans — notably celebrities such as Kanye West, Ice Cube, and 50 Cent — are breaking from the "façade" that President Trump is a "flaming racist."

"I really believe the facts are starting to speak for themselves, and that Donald Trump's record of accomplishments, particularly as it relates to African Americans, speaks for itself," Jason told Glenn. "He actually has a record to stand on, unlike even Barack Obama. When [Obama] was president, I don't think he had much of a record to stand on, in terms of, 'Hey, what did he actually deliver for African Americans?' President Trump has things he can stand on and, you know, beyond that I think black people understand when he starts talking about black unemployment rate. And America's unemployment rate. And then, when you add in for black men, the façade we've been putting on [President Trump] … you know, this whole thing that he's some flaming racist, it just doesn't ring true."

Jason suggested that Trump's fearlessness, unabashed masculinity, and record of keeping his promises resonates with men in the black community. He also weighed in on how media and social media's bias plays a huge role in convincing people to hate President Trump while ignoring Antifa and others on the Left.

"I keep explaining to people, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, they're some of the most secular places on earth. And we've reduced everyone to a tweet, that we disagree with," he added.

Megyn Kelly is not happy about the "disgusting" media coverage of President Donald Trump, specifically pointing to Lesley Stahl's "60 Minutes" interview on CBS Sunday.

On the radio program, Megyn told Glenn Beck the media has become so blinded by the "Trump Derangement Syndrome" that they've lost their own credibility — and now they can't get it back.

"It's disgusting. It's stomach-turning," Megyn said of the media's coverage of the president. "But it's just a continuation of what we've seen over the past couple of years. Their 'Trump Derangement Syndrome' has blinded them to what they're doing to their own credibility. They can't get it back. It's too late. They've already sacrificed it. And now no one is listening to them other than the hard partisans for whom they craft their news."

Megyn also discussed how she would have covered the recent stories about Hunter and Joe Biden's alleged corruption. Watch the video below to catch more of the conversation:
