WASHINGTON – Remember the viral page that creates President Obama dubs to popular songs? Well, its latest may also be its best.
YouTube user baracksdubs, which has become a sensation for its mashups of Obama “singing” hits like “Shake It Off” and “Uptown Funk,” released its newest video Monday. Baracksdubs put together a meticulously edited clip using speech footage that shows the president singing – and dancing – to the Drake song, “Hotline Bling.”
Using soundbites, the video puts together the lyrics while also superimposing Obama’s face over Drake’s during parts of the original song’s music video. The results are terrific.
The video already has nearly a half-million views in one day.
The YouTube account has also mashed up other hits with Obama such as “Call Me Maybe” and “Thriller.”
