powerpoint karaoke?

yes, while the two have existed separately in the past, it is a relatively new phenomenon that has melded them together in a glorious combination of improv, corporate-speak, and a healthy amount of alcohol.

In a typical event, a few brave people volunteer to “present” a random deck of slides pulled off the Web, or borrowed from friends or employers. (I first heard about PowerPoint Karaoke when an organizer asked if she could use a deck I had presented on word meanings.) The audience laughs, cheers, and yells out suggestions as the presenters gamely struggle to link one slide to the next, transforming something that probably started life as a tedious corporate monologue into a five-minute flight of creative irony.
