The Popdust Files: alphacat, barack obama, osama bin laden, viral video

For what was in all likelihood the most pimp moment of his first two-and-a-half years in the White House, no one would really have blamed Pres. Obama if he had addressed the country in a rhymed flow over a booming, Lex Luger-esque beat to announce the death of Osama Bin Laden. Since the Pres decided to go the more traditional, tactful route with his speech, noted Obama impersonator Iman “Alphacat” Crosson has done us the favor of showing us what it would have looked and sounded like had the man gone swag with it.

It’s worth watching mainly because of how spot-on Alphacat’s Obama impression is, absolutely nailing the hand gestures and uh, vocal, uh, tics of our nation’s 44th president. And beyond that, it’s a nifty little compendium of the most notable internet memes of the last half-decade or so—we counted references to Charlie Sheen, Rebecca Black, Antoine Dodson and even ENJ vs. Niks. “Oh that’ll be two terms please, thank you,” the Pres ends his rap. Touché, Barack Hussein.
