President Obama Joins Mark Ronson & Bruno Mars for ‘Uptown Funk’ … Sort Of
We’re not sure exactly what to call YouTuber Baracksdubs — Presidential Remixer? Secretary of Mashups? — but he does have a singular focus in what he produces. He takes popular songs and overlays audio snippets from President Obama or, in his own words, he “mashes together presidential speeches to the tune of popular music, based on fan requests. If the president sings it, it’s a worthy song.”
His latest is set to Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars’ hit ‘Uptown Funk’ (original here), and it incorporates Obama’s recent State of the Union. If you’ve never given this sort of thing a listen, here’s a good place to get started.
