In honor of Barack Obama’s inauguration, political song parodies are a hilarious way to make light of a typically formal event.

Hugh Atkin remixed Barack Obama and Mitt Romney’s speeches to fit the melody of Eminem’s The Real Slim Shady. The video reveals Mitt Romney as an enigma and the video leaves you wondering who the real Mitt Romney actually is.

The BaracksDubs YouTube channel features a mashup of Obama singing the viral hit Call Me Maybe. The video uses auto-tuned clips from various speeches and strings them together to sound like Carly Rae Jepsen’s smash hit. Other BaracksDubs include I’m Sexy and I know It, as well as Born This Way.

Political song parodies are a great way to turn serious political debates and speeches into something more fun and exciting. Jaime Neely discusses hilarious presidential mashups in her latest Trend Hunter interview.
