Thank you! [I also left out the many, many PowerPoint templates designed specifically with a Valentine's Day theme, for those "Oh, so romantic" boardroom encounters. A quick search terns up more than you could dream!] So, to extend: Certainly, this phenomenon offers another transformation of the medium. What happens when one person's PowerPoint becomes another person's game? What happens when slideshows become hit singles? More interesting to me (on this theme of parody of PowerPoint) is the way the use of the term "karaoke" satirizes the slideshow's status as complete "song," as a finished -- and presumably entertaining -- performance that can be recreated in a depreciated form without notes or script-- again calling attention to the use of the slides as the script. Moreover, the karaoke performance (given its playful context) is no doubt far more entertaining than the "original" presentation. The joke works against the backdrop of the bored-room experience and the interchangeability of presenter, content, and slides. I cannot wait for PowerPoint Idol to come to Youtube, if it hasn't already!
