'Get Lucky' Remix: Barack Obama Sings Daft Punk Summer Anthem (Video)

Through some skillful plucking and editing of President Barack Obama's speeches, the makers of the YouTube channel Barackdubs have created a remix of Daft Punk's summer anthem "Get Lucky" featuring the president.

The mash-up splices Obama's past speeches to find the words in the lyrics — "We're up all night to get lucky" — and then weaves it all back together in a hilarious remix.

"I bow to the persons who actually took the effort to gather and cut all the videos," someone commented on the YouTube video.

"It's videos like these that make me so glad that some people have too much time on their hands. Amazing," another person posted.

Past presidential Barackdubs remixes include Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe," "Can't Touch This" by M.C. Hammer, and LMFAO's "Sexy And I Know It," among others.

Dubbed the song of the summer, "Get Lucky" is off Daft Punk's fourth studio album, "Random Access Memories," which broke the record for most first-week streams in the U.S. after its release at the end of May.

The album, which features collaborations with musicians such as Pharrell, Giorgio Moroder, and Nile Rodgers to recreate the sounds of electronic dance music, sold 165,000 physical copies in its first week, putting the disc firmly at the top of the charts.
