Barack Obama sings Daft Punk's Get Lucky in Baracksdubs parody

Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky” is the song of the summer, and Barack Obama is the President or something. (I am not good with politics.) Naturally, these two things had to be combined, and Baracksdubs has obliged. We haven’t been this excited since we saw Daft Punk without their helmets or watched this “Get Lucky” GIF loop. Besides, everyone is doing a “Get Lucky” cover these days, so Obama had to get in on the act, for the sake of his plummeting approval ratings, obviously.

It could not have been easy to find clips of Obama saying all of these words, and in an inflection which would work in “Get Lucky.” It’s almost like he foretold this video and tweaked his speeches and delivery to match.

Thanks, Obama!
