What do Colin Powell, Jimmy Fallon, The Roots, and Tay Zonday have in common? Answer: A song with lyrics that makes Avril Lavigne’s Sk8er Boi sound like J’avais rêvé d’une autre vie. It’s also the number one viral video, or rather ties for the number one slot this week.
Carly Rae Jepsen
The latest gem from the people at Barack Dubs is President Obama “singing” Carly Rae Jepsen’s saccharine song “Call Me Maybe.” A more fitting title of this song for Obama who is on the fundraising circuit for the upcoming election against Mitt Romney should be “Donate Maybe.” Stitched together from his various public appearances and speeches, the Internets wildly approved of their previous video of Obama singing “Sexy and I Know It” by LMFAO. Based on his previous performance singing a bar of Al Green, I think Obama could nail both of these songs at karaoke. Mitt Romney however should stick to just his stump speeches and avoid singing in public.
