First there was will.i.am’s “Yes We Can” music video followed by his post-election “It’s A New Day” video that debuted on Oprah. Now French electronic music duo, Daft Punk are riding the wave of Obama mania to draw attention to themselves with their new attempt, “Aer OBAMA” a collaboration between DP and Adam Freeland, a UK-based DJ and producer.
Now don’t get me wrong, I am all for Obama related music videos. Considering this is such an important moment in history, I am all for people celebrating through song, dance or however they choose to honour the man. I just think it’s funny that Daft Punk are releasing a new video that is like every other Daft Punk song with the exception of spelling out the President’s name continuously throughout the song.
