Daft Punk's smash hit Get Lucky has brought the electronic duo worldwide success and now the song has gotten the presidential treatment.
A new video posted on Monday features President Barack Obama reciting the lyrics to Get Lucky through various snippets of his speeches over the years. The miniscule snippets ultimately come together to accurately become the song.
Watch the video here:
Of note here is not just the mash-up of numerous presidential speeches, but the dance moves given to the president through the technology of editing. In particular, the "dance moves" he does from 0:28 - 0:38 are in rhythm with the beat of the song. The video also features footage of President Obama combing his hair in front of a mirror and straightening his tie.
YouTube user barackdubs created the video and has also achieved success by making presidential versions of Call Me Maybe by Carly Rae Jepsen and Sexy and I Know It by LMFAO.
Daft Punk's Get Lucky reached the No. 2 position on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart last week. To be given the same treatment as Call Me Maybe, Sexy and I Know It and other enormous hits of that sort is a testament to the song's popularity.
Daft Punk said last month that they would be working on their remix of Get Lucky for the month of June, in addition to other tracks from their album Random Access Memories.
"We're working on some mixes ourselves," said Daft Punk member Thomas Bangalter. "So, yes, there will probably be Daft Punk mixes of Daft Punk. Usually, we never mix ourselves, that's something we feel we're interested in doing this time. The first track we're remixing is Get Lucky."
There is no official release date for those remixes.
