The YouTube channel responsible for viral lip dubs of President Barack Obama singing hit songs left viewers a gift this holiday season. “Barackdubs” uploaded its last piece of 2013, and it’s President Obama singing “Jingle Bells.”
From a production standpoint, the videos can be appreciated regardless of your political preferences. The mastermind behind the channel is 20 year-old Fadi Saleh. He finds parts of the President’s speeches where he says a lyric of a track, pieces all of the small clips together, and sets them to the instrumental of the song.
By far the most popular video is the lip dub of President Obama singing “Call Me Maybe.” This isn’t too surprising considering the original song became an infectious hit after Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, and other teen stars joined forces to lip-sync the song on YouTube. The “Barackdubs” version has racked up over 40 million views.
President Obama isn’t the only star on Saleh’s channel. Mitt Romney and the cast of “Today” have been featured in videos. “Barackdubs” also used parts of President Bill Clinton’s speeches for an almost too perfect version of “Blurred Lines.”
