President Obama Sings Daft Punk's "Get Lucky" in New Mashup

Oh, the possibilities are endless.

When you’ve got a public figure who’s given hundreds of interviews, news conferences and speeches, there are very few things you can’t make them say. So why not use footage to make the country’s most recognizable figure sing one of the year’s most recognizable songs?

Well that’s exactly what Baraksdubs did. The guys behind “Barack Obama Singing Call Me Maybe by Carly Rae Jepsen” posted a new video of the President singing to Daft Punk’s hit single “Get Lucky” yesterday, and it’s already racked up over one million hits on YouTube.

The song is the first single off of the French duo’s recent studio album, Random Access Memories, and it’s climbed as high as No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts.

If for no other reason, watch the video just to see the President of the United States of America admitting that he’s “up all night to get lucky.”
