Musical Obama Speech Mash-Up II

"Hope Changes Everything"

— February 20, 2008 — Pop Culture
Following closely on the heels of the wildly popular "Yes We Can" video is another musical mash-up of Barack Obama's speeches, this one titled, "Hope Changes Everything."

It features a video montage of Obama speaking, shaking hands and engaging with the public. In the background run words from one of his speeches:

"For many months we've been teased, even derided for talking about hope.

"We are choosing hope over fear. We are choosing unity over division, and sending all a message that change is coming to America. Hope is what lead me here today.

"With a father from Kenya and mother from Kansas and a story that could only happen in the United States of America. We can together as democrats, republicans and independents and stand up and say we are one nation, we are one people, and our time for change has come."

At time of posting, the last video, put together by Will.I.Am and featuring other supportive celebrities, has received 10,220,343 views, been featured in 4,085 blog posts and 7 duplicate videos have been made.

Since its February 11, 2008 debut, the new video has had 65,600 views. Will it become just as viral?
