Obama That I Used to Know: Gotye Parody Takes President to Task

by at . Comments

Nicely played, Internet. While Gotye’s hit song “Somebody That I Used to Know” is now massively overplayed, this parody devoted to a young voter's waning enthusiasm with President Barack Obama is worth checking out.

Like many, he longs for the "Obama That I Used to Know" ...

It's a fairly predictable effort, as Obama fatigue has set in even among many of his biggest fans, but the video has its impressive lyrical moments.

The painting of the singers, a la Gotye's video, into the signature Obama “Hope” portrait from 2008 is also a nice touch ... and surprisingly detailed.

Compared to today's political landscape, 2008 feels like an eternity ago. Oh, Barack. We could have been so much more than friends with healthcare benefits.
