What’s the hottest song this summer? Drake’s “Started From the Botton?” Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines?” Avril Lavigne’s “Here’s To Never Growing Up?”

If you ask President Barack Obama, the answer’s unequivocally Daft Punk‘s “Get Lucky,” the disco-spinning lead single off the French duo’s new album Random Access Memories, their first in six years. 

Thanks to the high-tech mashup maestros at Barackdubs, the leader of the free world can now been seen adding vocal contributions to the hot dance track—through a series of cut-up press conferences, of course. 

The gag’s hardly the first to come from this camp. Barackdubs, who’s actually Fadi Saleh a 20-year-old biochemistry student signed to YouTube network Maker Studios, has contributed Obama-enhanced remakes for the past year, lending the President’s voice to such hit tracks as Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way,” Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe,” and Justin Bieber’s “Boyfriend.”

For his next test, the Daily Dot would like to see Obama cover Yeezus
