Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez and their tween heartthrob crew made a viral version. Katy Perry & Co. did a cutesy cover poolside at Coachella. Then the Harvard baseball boys and the SMU (Southern Methodist University) rowing girls got their arms and legs in on the action. And now thanks to YOUR votes, President Barack Obama is finally sending the same important message to the American people: CALL ME MAYBE!
Okay, technically Baracksdubs aka Fadi Saleh, the 19-year old behind the Presidential pop renditions of “Sexy and I Know It” and “Born This Way” put those words in Obama’s mouth per your request — but it’s kinda perf considering the Prez is calling on voters this year to help him keep the Oval Office, riiight?
Looks like Barry’s gonna need all the support he can get. Recent polls show Republican contender Mitt Romney gaining popularity, although his biggest gap with Obama is still the youth vote. So who are y’all gonna call in November?! And don’t say Ghostbusters!
If you need to practice exercising those civic muscles, vote for the next Baracksdubs interwebz hit by clicking these links: will it be Justin Bieber’s “Baby” or “Boyfriend“? And don’t forget to stay hip to the DC gossip with MTV’s Power of 12!
