'Obama That I Used To Know' parody a viral hit (video)
Have you heard the parody of the hit single “Somebody That I Used to Know” by Gotye? Some college grads have hijacked the tune for their parody that’s already a smash hit on YouTube. It intersperses some of the president’s more soaring lines from the 2008 campaign with laments about the current state of the economy for America‘s 20-somethings.
One line reads, “But college ended had to pay my rent. At least you’re the first gay president. But the change I got is that I moved in with my mother.” And the chorus: “Because you won and then you cut me off. Now your speeches never soar as high as unemployment. You took ObamaCare so far, but you left me like a dog strapped on Romney’s car.”
The video starts with the singer unclothed (not revealing) and as the song progresses, he is covered in body paint resembling the Obama hope poster.
