U Didn't Build That: Obama Channels MC Hammer!

by at . Comments

Before Mitt Romney's 47 percent comment gave it some competition, President Barack Obama's "you didn't build that" was the political gaffe of the year.

Obama said it this summer in a speech he gave referring to business owners, trying to espouse the idea that behind individual success is government infrastructure.

Not a terrible argument, but dreadfully worded by all accounts, igniting a firestorm of controversy that Republican opponents use against him to this day.

It also spawned this amazing viral video! Holla!

The latest in a string of people with no particular affiliation using clips of a political candidate's words to craft Internet classics, Hugh Atkin created this one.

An Australian lawyer and fan of political satire, Atkin hilariously took Obama's "You didn't build that" quote and spliced it together with other clips of the Prez.

The video, "U Didn't Build That," is set to MC Hammer's "U Can't Touch This," with dance moves and amazingly detailed lyrical excerpts to boot.

If there's one thing people across the political spectrum can agree on, it's that this is freaking hysterical. "U Didn't Build That" should be his official theme song.

"U Didn't Build That" is what those nasty Socialists say! Time to see the Prez for what he is! I think businesses in America should leave and go elsewhere...then let's see if Obama can 'build' what they have to benefit the nation....Oh, and gee---good luck in finding a replacement for what these hardworking businesses contributed to our nation's tax base. Millions of Americans would find themselves not quite so lavishly "entitled" would they!

You Obama fans are going to have to come to terms with this fact- we will not be held hostage so your president can take out of our pocket and redistribute to you. We are not going to stand back and watch this person who has made a wreck of this country have his way. Maybe it's his racism in which he see's that many whites have the money therefore that's who he takes from? No matter the reason, it will be a struggle for you until this guy can actually do something the honest way! I'm guessing this friction will last long past November.
