I don't care if you are the biggest Obama hater out there -- you WILL think this video is cool. Obama's "Yes we can" speech in New Hampshire was historically memorable. This video cements the inspiration found in his words. He may be full of hopeful air but if you take the speech in a more personal way, it can certainly rustle something good in your heart.
The video is not sponsored by Obama but a collabaration of celebrities who support him -- singing the words to the "Yes we can" speech. The song is released by will.i.am, a Black Eyed Peas' singer, and director Jesse Dylan, son of Bob Dylan.
The others featured in the video, including Scarlett Johanson, John Legend, Kate Walsh and Kareem Adbul Jabbar(among others), sing the words to the speech as Obama's voice is filtered through at the same time. The way they sync the words together is chilling. The ultra-coolness of this video will likely persuade at least a few undecided, non-investigative type of voters to swing for Obama. I hope we see something of equal awesomeness from Republicans sometime soon.
