Barack Obama Sings Call Me Maybe With Poise

By: Vivian Lau - Published: • References: youtube & youtube
The bubbly pop song sensation 'Call Me Maybe' by Carly Rae Jepson, has met revere, mockery and some sort of imitation over the Internet, and now it is the President's turn to join in the fun -- watch as the rhetoric is dropped as Obama sings Call Me Maybe.

The video is actually a compilation of clips pulled from other videos of Obama at various Presidential addresses, announcements or commencement speeches, so that every lyric of the 'Call Me Maybe' song is accounted for. The video flows seamlessly, as if he were actually singing, only the background changes rapidly. The clever video is put together by a YouTube channel called 'baracksdubs,' which features the charismatic President singing other songs of smothering popularity like 'I'm Sexy and I Know It' and 'Born This Way.'

Given the viral nature of videos these days, perhaps after this stunt, Obama's ratings will rise to match that of the of the pop song. Stats for Pop Song Belting Presidents Trending: Older & Warm
