http://elections.foxnews.com/2008/08/14/barack-roll-video-is-big-hit-on-youtube

As supporters’ excitement builds in anticipation of the presidential conventions, a new video has hit YouTube featuring clever editing of Barack Obama “singing” to Rick Astley’s 1987 hit “Never Gonna Give You Up” — a clip that has now attracted over 1 million viewers. The video plays off the Internet trend of spreading Astley’s video to unsuspecting viewers, a practice known as “rick-rolling.” Hugh Akin, creator of the Obama/Astley video, wrote on his blog that the video took him “a number of days” to produce and that he used Google’s Election Video Search gadget to find all the different clips of Obama speaking. Akin posted one video with just Obama and another version with a side-by-side comparison of the Obama and Astley videos. “The dancing really is quite similar,” Akin said when comparing the two.

Had to post this. It was outstandingly funny and clever.
Plus it got over a million views in less than a week

lol before reading that news (second thread) I thought there going to be

"I'm (name) and I approved this Barrack roll Video", but it was a supporter and he spend his time finding all the video to match rick roll lyric, which is outstanding. The supporter is a serious supporter.

Still there is peoples who said this video make Barrack more of a "Celebrity", or the video is telling us that pop is over cultures (I believed they are the Republic Supporter). Still that how Republic and Democratic act toward each other.


Short word: Great work.
