Watch Brilliant Barack Obama/MC Hammer Mash-Up ‘U Didn’t Build That’


You might think you’re sick of any and all discussion of Barack Obama’s “You didn’t build that” speech — which is now officially a meme — but believe us, you want to watch the video below. From Hugh Atkin, the genius who brought us the legendary Eminem mash-up “Will the Real Mitt Romney Please Stand Up?,” comes a very similar but perhaps even more fantastic video. “U Didn’t Build That” transforms Obama’s so-called gaffe into a victory lap of clever rhymes cobbled together from the president’s own words, to the tune of MC Hammer’s “U Can’t Touch This.” Watch our leader spit brilliant lines like, “If you’ve given three dollars before / I’m asking again for a few dollars more / Clint Eastwood and the empty chair / Would be better than this Republican pair” as Michelle Obama dances, after the jump.
