We have now fulfilled our sacred duty to the Elder God of Internet by posting The One True Web Video Of The Day for today and we can go back to our pathetic ant-lives on the bread crust of life. Praise Rang. (Via Gawker.)

    • This is what you get for trying to leave us. WE WILL NOT BE IGNORED, FACETACO.

      • You will! Starting tomorrow, if Obama sings any more stupid songs instead of RUNNING THE COUNTRY LIKE AN ADULT, I won’t know about it until I get home! And then I will be SO MAD that I couldn’t complain about it when anybody was around to listen!

        • I have the mental image of you putting taquito in a cookie monster mask and pretending he is huckabeast. Just to feel connected.

          (NOOOOOOOO DON’T LEAVE US I mean do what you have to do and good luck but NOOOOOO)

        • Two separate issues! He can sing stupid songs and run they country like an adult at the same time (his singing stupid songs aren’t damaging your credibility abroad or anything, and he’s doing it at events he would be at anyway, so it’s not as if it’s an extra hobby in the way that “sitting on a rocking chair in Texas” was a hobby for GWB).
          That said, this song is stupid and he shouldn’t have sung it. He also shouldn’t have a drone attack kill list, but that is unrelated to the singing problem.

        • I know the video was very subtle with its editing, but if you look closely you will see that the President is not actually singing.

    • “Typical liberal media. I will not rest until I see a supercut of Mitt Romney singing “We are Young” by fun.” — facetaco

    • i was and am with you. fake and pandering.

  2. I don’t really get this, because I had absolutely no idea that any such song existed until right now.

    I used to be with it, but then they changed what it was. Now what I’m with isn’t it, and what’s it seems weird and scary to me. It’ll happen to you.

  3. Yes, I will find any excuse to post this. I have no regrets.

  4. This is very unrelated to this post, but I thought of a good way to honour National Cheese Day (which yesteraday.) I only found at around 10pm, and my time was limited, but I did have Brie so I ate a few wedges and also sang Bryan Adams’ “Please Forgive Me” but instead of ‘Please’ I sang ‘Cheese’. I also may have been shirtless and/or pantless. Anyways, what was this post about, again?

    • I had cheese ravioli Hot Pocket Snackers for dinnner…AND I DIDN’T EVEN KNOW IT WAS NATIONAL CHEESE DAY.

      • On second thought, that’s actually not that impressive, considering I fit cheese into most of my meals.

        • Wait. Waaaaaait. Isn’t there cheese on your face? Are you a cannibal? Are you doing bath salts? Oh god now you know I know. Ha ha ha I was kidding about that, no suspicions here, no siree. Oh, who am I calling so frantically? No one. Just…just a phone sex line. Yes. Not the FBI. Phone sex.

        • That’s what I said at first when I found out. I was like “Pssht, if Cheese doesn’t appreciate the lengths I go to enjoy it, and doesn’t feel like it gets enough credit, then something’s wrong with cheese, I’ll-tell-you-what.” But I sang the song anyways because Cheese deserves it. Oh Cheese, my one and true love.

    • i avoided cheese because there is a recall in Wisconsin! DON’T EAT THE CHEDDAR!

  5. Sort of related, sort of not, but one of my ideas of hell is being one of those people standing behind the president while he’s giving a speech. Silly hat or no silly hat it has to be the most awkward thing in the world.

    • It’s not. I’ve stood behind politicians while they are giving speeches. Usually, you are a True Believer so it’s an awesome place to be, shaking your signs.

      My favorite was when my 32 year old self got dragged up on stage to represent the “youth vote.” It was like being carded for a political nerd.

      • Hurrah! I used to work in politics and part of my job was to pick people out of the general audience and volunteer group and put them up on stage behind the politician. It was so fun — these total strangers would absolutely light up when you told them what you wanted them to do and they realized they were going to spend the whole speech standing six feet from the Historic Figure they’d left their house to cheer anonymously. Made me like America so much.

  6. The post title got my hopes up.

    I was thinking that Obama full out used a bait and switch with the lyrics IRL (i.e. “We’re working tirelessly, and I mean that, to ensure that you and other students like yourself have more affordable access to education and aren’t loaded down with debt by the time you graduate. Now. I just met you. And this is crazy. But here’s my number. So call me maybe.”)

    And then he drops the mic, and the audience wails “AW FUCK HE GOT US. 10/10″
