This is by far the best political song parody I’ve seen in quite some time. The song (and video) was made by a group called JustNew Productions (?) based on Gotye’s Somebody That I Used To Know. It’s a pretty well written parody and I think it’s accurate about how a lot–a LOT–of people feel about Barack Obama.
Probably why the video is going viral.
Well, maybe that and the creative body painting.
(BTW, does Weird Al Yankovic still do parodies? I don’t know. Anyhow…)
Money out of politics.
I just happened to hear this song called Somebody That I Used To Know by Gotye and it was stuck in my head all day.
Now this is the more waaaay more popular cover by Walk off the Earth. I don’t know how they even came up with idea of performing it this way.
I usually give the lion’s share of the credit to creators, but Walk off the Earth has the better version. Sorry, Gotye. 😦
Anyway, this is Gotye’s original version. Nothing to hang his head about. I do think he owes Peter Gabriel and Sting a check each for the style swipe. Still, it’s a very cool song.
