It seems Barack Obama keeps inspiring musicians all over the US. from the Black Eyed Peas just released this music video called « Yes we Can »

Says an article on ABC News, the video is inspired by Obama’s victory speech after his victory in the New Hampshire primary

Features by Scarlett Johansson, John Legend, Kate Walsh, and lots of other celebrities French people don’t know about.

Apparently the video was made without Obama knowing, or consent, which reminded me of that other videos by « Obama girl »

and the sequel Obama vs Giuliani (avant que giuliani se retire de la course aux primaires)

(both through barely political)

The question is : do those videos help or hurt Obama’s campaign? Although I think the « obama girl » videos didn’t do any good, I’m not sure about the song. It could either be seen as a « Aaargh those fucking democcrats always with the Hollywood crowd » or be a « get up and vote young people » kind of song.

Either way, just a few more fun videos from the US presidential campaigns which I think are still way more inventive than ours!

Just for fun, check out this official video of Mike Huckabee with Chuck Norris

La vidéo reprend le concept des « chuck norris facts ». Mais si, Chuck Norris aka Walker Texas Ranger! Bon et ben aux Etats-Unis il y a tout une série de blagues qui s’est créée autour de lui et de sa force supposée incroyable, les « chuck norris facts »

exemple repris dans la vidéo: when chuck norris is doing a push up, he isn’t lifting himself up, he’s pushing the earth down.

(différence bien sûr entre cette vidéo et celles sur Obama, celle-ci est « Mike Huckabee » approved)
