Como se dice, como se llama: OBAMA!
In his attempt to attract Latino voters, Obama's campaign has recruited musicians to create campaign jingles appropriate for the musical tastes of various nationalities. This morning my friend shared with me a mariachi type band in Texas singing about Obama. I am a fan of his on facebook and his profile is totally nerdolicious, his musical tastes include classical music, and the hippest he gets is listing the Fugees. I wrote my friend suggesting that what I'd like to see is Calle 13 do a reggaeton version and two seconds later I get the video above, which is completely laughable and ridiculous, as much as the tejano one I'd seen earlier. The lyrics say absolutely nothing, but that's politics, people.
