The Sideshow
  • The 2012 debates as you’ve never heard them

    Barack Obama or Mitt Romney? Say you're still on the fence. Say you aren't sure where the two candidates stand on vital issues like twin baby ducks and Judge Dredd. American voter, have we got a video for you.

    The good folks at Bad Lip Reading have compiled highlights from the 2012 debates. But instead of, you know, including the actual audio, they've dubbed in alternate words that make no sense whatsoever. And therein lies the genius. Where else can you hear Obama speak about five-foot castles and listen to Romney reminisce about buying a saddle for his night class?

Listen carefully. Or not.

  • Obama asked about ‘Gangnam Style’

    Sure, President Barack Obama is a skilled orator, a best-selling writer and a Nobel Peace Prize winner. But what about his Gangnam-style dance moves?

    The commander in chief was grilled about his take on the South Korean rapper Psy's massively popular music video, "Gangnam Style," which became the most-liked video on YouTube. The video features the star doing his trademark move, the horse dance.

    According to the Associated Press, Obama told the New Hampshire radio station WZID-FM, "I just saw that video for the first time." He said, "I think I can do that move. But I'm not sure that the inauguration ball is the appropriate time to break that out."

    "Maybe," he said, "do it privately for Michelle."

    The video has spawned some very public parodies across the Web, including ones from the U.S. Naval Academy and "Saturday Night Live." And this one from "Late Show With David Letterman" pasted former Gov. Mitt Romney's head on a Gangnam dancer.
