Video: MC ‘Bama - You Didn’t Build That

SHARE Video: MC ‘Bama - You Didn’t Build That

It’s probably not possible in the United States anymore, but take a moment to put politics aside and enjoy some Obama Time.

This video mashup, tackling the “You Didn’t Build That” Republican rallying cry to the tune of M.C. Hammer’s “U Can’t Touch This,” is something that’s sorely missing from American politics in 2012: fun. It’s masterfully edited – produced by Australian viral video maker Hugh Atkin – you can dance to it and, best of all, there’s a cameo by Sun-Times Washington Bureau Chief Lynn Sweet, breaking down grammar for us. And Hulk Hogan.

Put on your shiny gold parachute pants and enjoy. The original Hammer video, just in case you need to compare:
