YouTube user baracksdubs has previously created video montages of U.S. President Barack Obama singing everything from Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe” to the Pokemon theme song. Now baracksdubs has produced a new clip that finds Obama crooning the undisputed song of the summer, Daft Punk’s smash hit “Get Lucky.”
Is it catching on? It seems so, as in just the first ten hours that the video was live it was clocking an impressive 1,000 views per hour.
Daft Punk’s original version of “Get Lucky” featuring Pharrell Williams currently sits at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100, with another Williams production, Robin Thicke’s controversial single “Blurred Lines,” taking the No. 1 position. “Get Lucky” is the first single from the band’s fourth studio full-length, Random Access Memories, which debuted with 339,000 copies sold in its first week of release this past May and has already gone Gold (500,000 copies sold).
