The biggest story to come out of Thursday's conclusion of the Republican National Convention was not Mitt Romney's acceptance specch, but #Eastwooding.

Eastwooding being the Twitter hashtag for parodies, jokes and memes at the expense of acting legend Clint Eastwood's unusual, yet highly entertaining speech.

The 82-year-old debated an invisible Obama in an empty chair in what had to be the strangest endorsement of Romney all week, and the Internet went nuts.

Here's the original photo - angled so Invisible Obama still uses a teleprompter (subtly hilarious) - along with some of our favorite celebrity-based parodies:

President Barack Obama has had a rough couple of weeks, but he's still right in the thick of the 2012 race thanks to millions of his loyal devotees.

Not the least of which: Obama Boy.

The track is a follow-up to the ubiquitous “Obama Girl” video from the 2008 election (although the creators have no connection to Amber Lee Ettinger).

This boy has a crush on Obama, no doubt:

The tune is one and the same, but the lyrics have been updated to a reflect the 2012 landscape, notably President Obama's support of gay marriage.

“I put down my Prop 8 sign, now I’m going to make you mine,” is a notable lyric, as is “You support me unlike the right. You’re my rainbow colored knight.”

Follow this link for EW's interview with the writer and director John Duarte, 29, and Obama Boy himself, Justin Brown, 28, for more on the video.

Then check out the Obama Girl classic below, just because. She's smokin'. These two viral videos definitely show the President's broad appeal ...

Carly Rae Jepsen's summer jam, "Call Me Maybe" is as infectious as it gets.

Even President Barack Obama can't resist belting it out during commencement speeches, campaign visits and press conferences ... well, at least in the below video of clips spliced together to form the idiotic lyrics of the catchy pop hit.

Watch the hilarity and sing along with the Prez:

Incidentally, 19-year-old Fadi Saleh (a.k.a. "Barackdubs" on YouTube) created this viral masterpiece, as well as Obama singing "Sexy and I Know It" by LMFAO.

Also incidentally, for a greatest hits of sorts compiling some awesome moments from an unforgettable lip-dubbing meme, check out this "Call Me Maybe" video.

University of Colorado student Madalyn Starkey posed for a photo with the President of the United States the other day ... possibly after a few too many drinks.

Traveling through Colorado Tuesday, Obama stopped in at a local pub known as The Sink, where the POTUS met many college students, including Starkey.

In the pic, Obama is grinning with his arm around her as the self-described "Professional Student" points her finger at the president in seeming disbelief:

Obama and College Student

Amid hundreds of shares and re-tweets, Starkey has been having fun with all the attention, saying "Woo, never knew a tweet could blow up like that. Neat!"

"Bet you wish you had taken me to prom now, huh?" she Tweeted at one follower.

The pic has taken off on social media sites like Instagram and Twitter ... almost as much as Obama slow jamming the news with Jimmy Fallon on Late Night.

Political views aside, needless to say, the Prez is the king of cool. Who wouldn't want to pose for a drunk photo with the guy and post it on Twitter?

President Barack Obama appeared on NBC's Late Night with Jimmy Fallon early this morning, taking part in the show's running bit called "slow jamming the news."

If you haven't seen it, the segment's name speaks for itself.

In front of a live college audience at the University of North Carolina, Obama talked about student loans while Fallon's house band the Roots jammed on a slow, sensual R&B beat, making the topic seem sexier than you ever thought possible:

With the rhythmic tunes accompanying him, Obama said, "What we said is simple: Now is not the time to make school more expensive for our young people."

Fallon then added (in his best Barry White voice), "Awww, yeah. You should listen to the president. Or as I like to call him, the Preezy of the United Steezy."

"Things are heating up inside Congress' chambers behind those closed doors."

We don't even know what that means, but the "POTUS with the most-est" needs to bring the Roots with him and deliver campaign speeches this way more often.

Mitt Romney wouldn't stand a chance.

President Barack Obama is probably not going to quit his day job (at least not for another year), but he did make a brief foray into R&B at a fundraiser last night.

The Commander-in-Chief burst into song while thanking Al Green, who had performed earlier at the same event, crooning a bar from "Let's Stay Together"

Obama then joked he hadn't been ushered off-stage. Watch:

It all happened at Manhattan's Apollo Theater late Thursday, when Obama stepped to the podium and veered from prepared remarks to thank Green.

Apparently not content to simply praise Green, Obama launched into "Let's Stay Together," warbling "I, so in love with you" ... complete with vibrato.

He stopped to laughter and applause, remarked that his staff didn't believe he'd do it, and that the Sandman hadn't come out to yank him outta there.

That would be Sandman Sims, a famous tap dancer who chased unpopular acts off-stage at the Apollo for decades. Sort of a Keyboard Cat predecessor.

Honest mistake or Freudian slip?

Sen. John McCain mixed up Barack Obama and Republican candidate Mitt Romney, who he endorsed this week, in a campaign appearance on the latter's behalf.

Speaking on Romney's behalf in South Carolina, the 2008 GOP nominee opined that he has little doubt President Obama will get the country going again.

Pretty funny.

President Barack Obama blended his roles as dad and commander-in-chief on Christmas, spending time with his family and U.S. service members stationed in Hawaii.

Posing for a picture with the leader of the free world, one young American was far from intimidated. In fact, the youngster proceeded to maul the President's face!

No word on how the Secret Service handles situations like these, or if the little one was interrogated. Watch the amusing video of Obama and a hands-on baby below:

Chalk it up to East Coast bias? Not enough coffee? Sleeping through 9th grade geography?

Whatever the reason, the press corps traveling with President Obama on a campaign swing out west this week were given a map identifying Wyoming as Colorado.

The two rectangular states do look similar, but come on. Colorado is not only crucial to Obama's re-election, it's where he gave his '08 convention speech. Weak!

Colorado vs. Wyoming

Obama's three-day swing took him to Washington, California and Colorado, where he held public events and private fundraisers for his 2012 re-election bid.

Tuesday in Denver, an audience saw a speech on Obama's jobs program.

The larger point of the trip was to help Obama reconnect with voters and gain media coverage in Colorado, which is expected to be a swing state in 2012.

As for Wyoming, Obama lost by 32 PERCENT to John McCain in '08. Maybe subconsciously he blocked that out and forgot the state exists, resulting in this error.

Barack is dealing with a lot these days.

Trying to manage two wars, revive a stagnant economy, provide health care, reach a compromise over the federal debt ceiling and keep various factious of constituents happy regarding social issues is a balancing act, to be sure.

One he seems a bit overwhelmed by in this College Humor video, which uses a Fourth of July BBQ as a metaphor for President Obama's life ...
