TikTok Spying Fears, Updated “Alphabet Song” & A Case of Auto-Brewery Syndrome | The Daily Show


TikTok. It’s the short video app
for people who were bored
before the end of the sentence. But now, Congress is worried that although
the videos might be short, the consequences could last
for a long time. WOMAN: The app that’s taken
teenagers by storm, TikTok, now facing a storm
of a different kind– accused of posing
a possible security risk. With more than 500 million
active accounts around the world, now all eyes are
on the people behind the app. Two top senators targeting
the Chinese tech company that owns TikTok. In a letter to the director
of national intelligence, asking for an investigation
into TikTok and other
Chinese-based companies, warning they may pose
a national security risk. This is a threat
to American security. When China has data
on 110 million Americans, who knows what they do with it? That’s right.
Chuck Schumer wants to launch an investigation
into TikTok. But I feel like
he’s just doing this so he can have someone come
to Congress to explain what TikTok is. He’s like, “I tried
to subpoena my granddaughter, “but she never returns my calls. Never returns my calls.” But for real, it would…
it would be very serious if the Chinese can use TikTok
for spying, because, I mean,
with this information, China can learn of all of
America’s dance moves, you know? They’re just gonna be
figuring it all out. They’re like, “Yeah. Oh, yeah,
we figured it all out.” That’s the thing
that’s kept the U.S. ahead of China all this time. China’s there like,
“We have nuclear weapons “and 5G, but we can’t figure out
how to hit the ‘Woah.’ When do you lock?! Oh!” And keep in mind–
TikTok is, like, 90% teenagers. So I’m not worried that China is
watching me when I’m there. I’m more worried that the dude from Catch a Predator
is gonna pop up and be like, “Trevor,
what are you doing here?” “I’m just here for the memes! I’m just here
for the memes! I swear!” And can we agree
on something, people? At this point,
let’s just agree that every app is spying on us,
okay? Just work under that assumption. Facebook, Instagram, Twitter–
they’re all watching us. The only app that somehow
doesn’t know your location is Uber.
That is the only one. -(laughter)
-For some strange reason, they just can’t figure it out. (applause and cheering) All right, moving on. If you are a young child
just learning the alphabet, first of all,
please stop watching this show. Uh, seriously, I might say
(bleep) at any time. And, also, it turns out
you’ve been doing it all wrong. The new alphabet song
that’s getting mixed reviews. Yeah, you can say that. This version aims to get rid
of the infamous “L-M-N-O-P” and make it clearer for kids.
Take a listen. ♪ A, B, C, D, E, F, G ♪ ♪ H, I, J, K, L, M, N ♪ ♪ O, P, Q, R… ♪ (audience booing) (laughter) Oh… no. First of all, no. Secondly, hell, no. (laughter) And third, this new Kanye album
is a real departure. (laughter) It went real weird. Who is this for?
Who is this for? Because if my kid can’t
figure out “L-M-N-O-P,” I don’t want to make it easier
for them. I just want to know
as soon as possible so I can stop saving up
for their college. I just want to know. I don’t want to waste my money. I mean, at some point, even
as a kid, you would figure out that “L-M-N-O-P” are separate
letters in the alphabet, right? There’s no 40-year-old
who’s out there who’s just like, “Excuse me. For the Wi-Fi, “is it upper case
‘L-M-N-O-P’ or, uh…? ‘Cause it keeps saying
‘password incorrect.'” (laughter) All right, and finally,
here’s a great new excuse for drunk drivers to try. WOMAN: An Ohio man was
pulled over for drunk driving, and a blood test revealed
he had twice the legal amount of alcohol in his system,
but the driver swore to police he didn’t have anything
to drink, and turns out,
he was telling truth. Doctors say that man has
a rare medical condition that turns yeast in your gut
into alcohol. It’s called
“Auto-brewery syndrome.” (laughter, groaning) Auto-brewery syndrome. That is the coolest disease…
I’ve ever heard of. Like, essentially, when this guy
eats carbs, inside his stomach, a team of tiny hipsters
turns it into beer. That’s what’s happening,
you realize that, right? And obviously, I’m sure
there are downsides to this. Like, for one,
he could never run a marathon, ’cause it’s gonna be like,
“Oh, I got a carbo load.” And all of a sudden it’s like, “Actually,
I’m gonna skip the race, ’cause, bitch, I need to dance!” (laughter)

  1. Wait the "new" version is exactly the version we learned in Chinese schools. THE AMERICAN'S ARE SPYING ON THE CHINESE ENGLISH CLASSES!

  2. #Graceful family will tell you how to screw up your family members with that auto-brewery shit disease…🤦🏽‍♀️😂😭

  3. difference is fb, instagram, tweeter not gov owned and do not need to hand over data to the gov. Every company in china needs to hand in whtever data when the gov wants.

  4. I'm a little surprised at Trevor criticising the ABC song as that's just the version English teachers use for ESL (English as a second language)… I taught English in Japan and we sang that in children's lessons. "LMNOP" is incomprehensible to a kid learning English as their second language.

  5. If there are kids who get confused by the old alphabet song the solution shouldn’t be to make it “easier” for them…it should be to make the kids smarter. Future generations are doomed.

  6. Sorry America this is literally how the rest of the world sings it 😅…just like how the rest of the world uses the metric system instead of the Imperial system…

  7. While US company and their associated political figure trying to gain their own benefit by putting fear into their people and make them fight against each others, China is trying their hardest to solve all internal problem and construct a better future, keep up the good work dear fellow American politicians, you are doing a great favor for us.Thank you sincerely, and good luck with your democracy.

  8. I'm malaysian and speaking of the abc song when i was 7 i sang it as "l m n o p" but my whole class just sang it as the "l m n" version which lead to me having a mini breakdown in the middle of the song.

  9. I got reminded I am not American when I heard the audiences reaction to ''LMNOP''', by the way the new version Trevor knows is how it always has been sung in South Africa,LOL.

  10. American politicians are full of shit, how the hell is tik tok a national security all of a sudden? Why don't they say the same about Facebook towards other countries

  11. They had the creator of this ABC version on NPR. He made that version so children that were non-native speakers could see and hear each letter clearly. A woman also said her autistic son was able to realize for the first time that "lmnop" are separate letters. The man was receiving a lot of hate mail and even threats, and did not want to use his last name on air.

    Come on people, it's a gd alphabet song. Save your rage for more useful things.

  12. Here's my argument for a rewrite that I think works. 🎶A, B, C, D, E, F, *G*, 🎶H, I, J, K, L, M, *N*, 🎶O, P, Q, R, S, *T*, 🎶U, V, W, X, Y, *Z*, 🎶 now I've sung my…(etc. etc.)
    I've worked in special education for many years (withold jokes, please) and yes, many kids have a hard time with the song, along with typically developing very young children, when they first have to make the distinction between "fun song" and, "there's actual information in the lyrics, but it's hard to hear the individual letters." The "N" doesn't rhyme, but everything else does, and it has the added perk of not having to say "Y and Z."

  13. 1:16 not funny, similar things like cambridge analytica can be doe when you have data points about people. so the concern is right.

  14. i've heard so many different versions of the alphabet sung and some of them do separate the lmnop but they don't use twinkle twinkle little star as the music

  15. I don't know about ya'll but we sang lmnop to speed up the song it was sang so damn slowly. Always knew they were separate letters.

  16. Years ago, I heard about a man in Japan whose gut made alcohol. Humorists opined that his wife never realized he was drunk until once when he came home sober.

    This needs a low carb diet.

  17. ughhhh i hate to be this person but the new abc song could be great for students with disabilities #specialedteacher

    but also it makes me hella uncomfortable too

  18. That version of the alphabet song has been around for years in non-English speaking countries. I used to have to teach it that way to ESL elementary school kids.

  19. I thought tik Tok/musically was like those those Android apps, that have ads on YouTube, poorly designed, filled with virus/malware. Used by creeps/pedophiles to talk to kid. You get an ad after every level. Didn't know kids went crazy over it like fortnite

  20. Couldn't get the point what's wrong with this new version of the alphabet song at first. After listening to the old one, I realize that in China, we always put a pause between "LMN" and "OP"

  21. It's fun to watch some americans freaking out because a foreign app have a lot of users.

    I wonder, if the other countries in the world begins to behave with the same kind of paranoia how many of them will be launching investigations on google or facebook.

    "Oh no! The internet has foreign content!"
    (pikachuShochedMeme.jpg)

    Lets create a wall to keep these foreigners out of our country, a firewall!
    (Copy China's idea)

  22. Maybe it’s the guy singing it that makes it even worse. The way he annunciates L give me the same feeling when someone comes in for a kiss I don’t want and his mouth is open so you know he’s about to try to stick that nasty slug in my mouth and it all happens so fast but at the same time in slow motion, so, @ 2:45 that is my face. (Sorry… too much? Oversharing? Well now you know how it feels! If you’re one of those people who goes around tongue punching us innocent victims please stop. Never ever go in w a tongue ready to go on a first kiss. Don’t go in for a kiss w your mouth open ever, unless you’re trying to ruin the date. Even then, still don’t cuz it’s just cruel and unreasonable to do to someone who hasn’t like committed some sort or horrific crime. Most ppl I’d assume will try to be nice and just finish the date and part ways but noooooo, you gotta make it worse. Learn to read body language.)

    Edit: added a time link for the face. I also wanted it so I could click it repeatedly and laugh!! So enjoy that part even if you don’t enjoy my comment.

  23. Guys do whatever works for you but the reason we have traditionally done lmnop is because it rhymes….. g, p, v, z … it makes the song catchy so u can sing it

  24. "I felt "m" & "n" were too similar, so I stopped trying to learn the alphabet because I got confused." ~Britney S.Pierce "glee"

  25. Some people are just weird Trevor. The new versions sounds so wrong. I was watching and a colleague screamed no no no. We love the old version and it is the real Deal.

    I love the way you bring life to issues that will normally be boring or no go for me.

  26. This was one of the funniest episode i have ever seen … i was at work and couldnt stop laughing so loud😂😂😂

  27. There was a similar condition in Greys anatomy like auto brewery syndrome where the sugars the guy ate would turn alcoholic, very interesting

  28. I teach English in elementary school in Japan. That version of the alphabet song is the one we use. The LMNOP part in the original is really hard for them to pick up. But I did have a lot of mental struggles getting used to it 😂
