This Remixed Christmas Carol Is Getting Pinoys Pumped To Cook For The Holidays
The food-themed holiday song is a result of a collab between ketchup fans and an AI!
Cooking for the holidays is a tough gig. That’s why experienced cooks keep a trick or two up their sleeves to make this busy season fun. For example, some play holiday bops on loop as these help get them into a merrymaking mood.
In fact, we found some food fans cooking with a very peculiar holiday song in the background — one that’s generated by an AI!
An AI-generated Christmas carol?
For the past couple of years, artificial intelligence has been used to make hilarious movie scripts and eerily legit-looking artwork. And now, thanks to Heinz Philippines, an AI successfully created a funky mashup of a popular Christmas song!
How did it happen? Back in November, Heinz Philippines posted a couple of social media surveys to ask its fans which Christmas carol and food-and-ketchup pairings are their favorites. Then, the ketchup brand "fed" everyone’s comments to an AI program and let it do its thing.
The result: the Heinz Ketchup Carol! This fun holiday- and food-themed song will lift your mood and get you cooking, just like how it did for these food fans!
