Where better to cover a white girl rap than Barnard?
I've said it before and I'll say it again: these baracksdubs videos where President Obama is remixed into singing popular songs are usually the best press he gets in any given month. Other, lesser remixes of people in the news can be tough to watch, but this cover of "Fancy" manages to actually get close enough to the tune that I listened to it a few times just for listening's sake.
My only complaint is that they couldn't find a clip of the Prez saying the word "fancy" by itself. The guy hosts black tie dinners several times a month, and you're telling me he's never said "fancy" on tape? Or comments about our fancy new techniques for torturin' folks?
Now they need to make a video of Obama singing the Weird Al parody, "Handy."
