It’s videos like this one that make us LOVE the elections here at SoJones. We’re not too crazy about the debates, although they’re very entertaining to watch sometimes, but we’re head-over-heels in love with the way television makes fun of the presidential candidates.
The Tonight Show host, Jay Leno, showed a parody video of Carly Rae Jepsen’s song, “Call Me Maybe,” that “starred” President Barack Obama and presidential candidate Mitt Romney. With a bit of computer editing and digital effects, the political rivals perform the song, imitating the style of the athletes from Harvard University and Southern Methodist University who first did it earlier this month.
Here’s the clip from The Tonight Show:
“Call Me Maybe” has been a huge hit since last week, landing in the number one spot on iTunes. The original video has garnered 71 million views so far.
Do you think “Romney” and “Obama” pulled it off?
