Yesterday Instagram announced Hyperlapse, their new smoothed time-lapse app for iOS. This will inevitably lead to a proliferation of cool timelapse videos. So I thought it would be necessary for people to add Yakety-Sax (aka the Benny Hill Theme) to their timelapse videos.
I’m not sure exactly if I’m proud of this but, I went ahead and threw together an implementation for desktop browsers using the Web Audio API to add the Yakety-Sax soundtrack on top of the video.
What you need to do is
- Drag this bookmarklet to your bookmarks toolbar
Add Yakety Sax
- Go find your Hyperlapse video on Instagram.com. The url should look like this.
From your profile you may need to click on go to video page.
- Click the bookmarklet in your bookmarks toolbar
- Hit play on the video and enjoy your Yakety-Sax-ified Hyperlapse
Update 9/15/2016: Instagram updated the url format of their videos and also now use the HTML5 video tag (yay!). I fixed the bookmarklet and example link to use these new urls, so Hyper-Yakety-Lapse is back in action
