The person who cut this video of President Obama’s past speeches into a parody of “Call Me Maybe” should be hired in any number of fields: sound editing, library science, meme generation.

You know what you’re going to get before you hit play, but the way that the song is able to maintain its consistent, driving rhythm, and the fact that Obama doesn’t go past a single verse/chorus, really just makes this time-waster worth your time. You can hear the real song when Carly Rae Jepson is in town next year opening for Justin Bieber. Scoop via Gawker.

    This is funny.  Is it a problem that I don’t know who Carly Rae Jepson is?
