In the latest video to set the internet ablaze, President Barack Obama takes the opportunity to join in on the fun and do his own rendition of Carly Rae Jepsen’s chart topping radio hit “Call Me Maybe”.
It’s pretty hard not to let out at least a small chuckle seeing the POTUS take part in a trend that has stretched the globe in lip syncing this undeniably catchy tune.
Thanks to YouTuber Fidel Saleh, operating under the moniker barackdubs, we get a rather humorous 1 minute and 47 seconds of a very well put together rendition of the song as performed by our Commander in Chief.
This video comes on the heels of many other notable versions of Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe”, originating with Harvard’s baseball team creating a special dance in a 15-passenger van. Their video has reached a respectable 12 million views since it was published on YouTube.
Overall it seems as though Jepsen’s hit has created more YouTube sensations than any other video that I’ve ever seen, and it sadly has not shown any signs of slowing down in the near future.
However, I do feel that the incumbent President’s version is the most entertaining video of them all as it’s always amusing to see a government official take part in a YouTube sensation, even if it isn’t by choice.
