Read about this in a newspaper over lunchtime. In an interview with 80's pop icon, Rick Astley, mention was made of a video someone (blogger - Hugh Atkin based in Sydney) had put together of President Obama 'singing' his infamous hit single "Never Going To Give You Up". Rick Astley described it as "it's genius".
"Because someone had to do it... Senator Obama just BarackRoll'd you (like a rickroll... only Presidential)."
At almost 6M views already, it's a YouTube hit. Go check it oot.
(Worth noting that Rick's original video of this song only has 1.5M hits on YouTube in comparison to Hugh's remix).
It's always great when artists endorse such remix creativity !
