Hugh Atkin, a blogger from Australia, recently released a parody music video featuring President Barack Obama and GOP frontrunner Mitt Romney. “Will The Real Mitt Romney Please Stand Up” is a mash-up, compiled from video clips, where Atkins puts the candidate’s voice over Eminem’s “The Real Slim Shady” beat for comical effect.
It begins with the president asking the “real Mitt Romney” to “please stand up.” Then Romney, through meticulous editing, raps “Y’all act like you haven’t seen a Mormon before / jaws down on the floor / I’m not concerned about the very poor.”
Using some of Romney’s greatest gaffes, the video has received more than 15,000 views on YouTube — with most viewers applauding the editing job.
