Barack Obama 'singing' Daft Punk's 'Get Lucky' goes viral - watch

The montage video is the latest in a long line of remixes and covers of the hit single

A mock up video of US President Barack Obama 'singing' Daft Punk's recent Number One hit 'Get Lucky' has gone viral.

The video - which you can see above - uses various clips of Obama in order to make it seem as if he is singing the song. It was put together by YouTube user baracksdubs, who has previously made similar videos featuring the president singing 'What Makes You Beautiful' by One Direction, 'Call Me Maybe' by Carly Rae Jepsen and 'U Can't Touch This' by MC Hammer.

The original song, from Daft Punk's recent album, 'Random Access Memories', has already been properly covered by a host of artists, including Peace and Mystery Jets at a recent London show, as well as by The Roots, who performed the song in the style of Simon and Garfunkel.

Daft Punk recently revealed that they are working on a remix of their own for 'Get Lucky'. The French duo said in an interview with Radio 1's Pete Tong that they are remixing a number of songs from the album. "We're working on some mixes ourselves," Thomas Bangalter told Tong. "So, yes, there will probably be Daft Punk mixes of Daft Punk. Usually, we never mix ourselves, that's something we feel we're interested in doing this time. The first track we're remixing is 'Get Lucky'."
