As Presidents' Day approaches in the United States, this Honda commercial hit the internet featuring Abe Lincoln and George Washington.

It seems these days, hip hop culture is synonymous with popular culture. This commercial is an example of how hip hop sensibilities and references find their way into the most non-hip hop settings.

The commercial opens with Abe Lincoln's famous lines, "Four score and many years ago..." However, it quickly turns musical as George Washington jumps in with some auto-tuned ad libs of his own. The two historical figures trade raps with one of the funniest moments coming from Washington as he says, "Who's your founding father?" This line references a common rap phrase "Who's your daddy?"
