Lighten Up! Is This Barack Single Ladies Spoof Funny?

Last week at the Inauguration Barack Obama showed Beyonce his "Single Ladies" moves. Unfortunately, all we got to see was a "put-a-ring-on-it" hand wave, while the president admitted that he did the dance for his daughters (sans Beyonce's outfit). Well now someone has used Barack's admission as inspiration. If the president made his very own "Single Ladies" spoof for YouTube, it might look something like this.

I liked the video. He did a great job with the accent some of the lyrics were funny. Shane scares me. Point blank period. He just does.

I saw this a couple of weeks ago. This guy is funny, he also does the song Whatever You Like and has a couple of debate spoofs.

Shane Mercodo looks disgusting. I posted him on a blog before and I was not alone in thinking that either. He may have the moves down but still. . As for the Barack guy in the video, I don't think he was trying to be that good of a dancer. Barack Obama is not that fast with his moves on the dance floor either. I liked the video.

Shane Mercodo definitely has the moves down ;), but I think Obama's impersonator might fill out that getup a little better. I also thought the Obama spoof was pretty funny; the moves were great and he seemed to pulloff several of the President's mannerisms quite successfully.

Well, I wasn't pmsl-ing or rofl-ing or even lol-ing for that matter. I did make sound that went a bit like "heh-huhmph" though, mainly because of the voice/accent and the thumb/index details. I give the video 2 thumbs up. (out of four)

More annoying than funny, to be honest. But to be fair, I find the original song irksome as well.

The song itself is a bit annoying but this guy has got his voice down packed!
