Mitt Romney gets the magical mash-up treatment

Mitt Romney gets the magical mash-up treatment

Politics and music usually go together like peanut butter and ham. Witness the pairing of GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney and Kid Rock, who endorsed Romney in their shared home state of Michigan (or the maybe-maybe-not union of Rick Santorum and Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine). But sometimes, politics and music can be united in a beautiful, court-approved marriage that results in magic. Like President Obama singing Al Green, or, in this case, Eminem’s “The Real Slim Shady” being used to highlight the elusive views of Mitt Romney. Reminiscent of the Jay-Z splice a few weeks ago, Australian Hugh Atkin splices together choice words of various speakers—but mostly Romney—to create a delightful portrait and deconstruction of a political candidate, all set to a memorable hook. There are plenty of inspired moments, including the use of Obama for the chorus, but the moment at 1:30 is probably the highlight of the clip. [via Buzzfeed]
