Obama’s last State of the Union is much, much better as a Gregory Brothers remix

The only mic drop better than President Obama‘s final State of the Union address is the Gregory Brothers’s songified version of it.

Miss the speech the first time around? The Gregory Brothers edited and autotuned it into a catchy, two-and-a-half minute affair that’s probably even more entertaining in the original.

With some backup dancers behind him and the audience dancing along, Obama’s easily got everyone hooked with his hook. And if you thought Speaker of the House Paul Ryan’s poker face was great and meme-friendly before, just wait until he starts dancing along—against his party’s better judgment.

Obama’s next single won’t drop in the U.S. Capitol, but we’ll all still be watching.
