Barack Obama's Version Of 'Get Lucky' Is An Internet Smash
It isn't as good as the original, but the President's rendition of 'Get Lucky' is worth a listen
Viral videos featuring Barack Obama in some capacity rarely go by without a few 100,000 views at the very least, and one of the most recent videos to feature the President of the United States of America is a musical number that looks to continue this trend of exploiting Barack's popularity.
The YouTube channel Baracksdubs uploaded a video of the President 'singing' his own version of Daft Punk' 'Get Lucky,' mashing up speeches and audio clips from the President to recreate the opening verse and first chorus of the hit song by the French duo. Unoriginal; yes, but entertaining; you better believe it!
Baracksdubs have previously mashed up Barack's past statements to make 'Barack Obama Singing Call Me Maybe by Carly Rae Jepsen' and 'Barack Obama Singing Can’t Touch This by M.C. Hammer,' but his version of 'Get Lucky' might be the best yet. What's more, the video also features clips from Barack's hilarious White House Correspondents' Association dinner video, in which the president pretends to be method actor Daniel Day-Lewis portraying the president for a Steven Spielberg-directed biopic.
As for Daft Punk, they really didn't need any more exposure of their 'song of the summer,' with 'Get Lucky' continuing to break records around the world and online. Since it was released earlier this year the song has already gone on to top charts across the globe, become the most listened to song in Spotify's history and is currently on the verge of selling a million copies in the UK alone.
Obama is regularly humoured online
