1. Right click on the imported audio track and select Properties. Now choose the classic method and make sure to check the “Lock to stretch” checkbox.

2. Hold the CTRL key on the keyboard and drag the right side of the clip to the right to make it longer. This will distort and slow the video and sound.

That’s all there is to it! Enjoy.
