This video takes a clip of the U.S. Army Honor Guard rifle inspection, and adds a load of fitting sound effects over the top. It not only works, it makes the whole thing entertaining.
This is actually a taste of things to come, because these are the sorts of noises our robot overlords will make when preparing their weapons in the not-too-distant future.
