*Whoa, is this interesting or what?
A new video mashup is out meshing President Obama’s “you didn’t build that” comment with M. Hammer’s catchy classic “Can’t Touch This.”
The man behind it, Hugh Atkin, an Australian attorney, also created a recent similar vid called “Will the Real Mitt Romney Please Stand up.”
“U Didn’t Build That” by MC ‘Bama is essentially a mashup of various moments from the 2012 campaign — ranging from the president giving speeches, to First Lady Michelle Obama dancing — all set to the song we all know well.
In case you forgot, the backstory to Obama’s “You didn’t build that” comment is that it quickly became a target for Republicans’ attacks toward the president, who they argue doesn’t support small business and free enterprise. in other words, his “You didn’t build that” was taken out of context. Here is his complete quote:
“If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help,” Obama said back in July. “There was a great teacher somewhere in your life. Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive. Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen. The Internet didn’t get invented on its own. Government research created the Internet so that all the companies could make money off the Internet.”
