ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Hugh Atkin's "Will The Real Mitt Romney Please Stand Up" is a virtuoso feat of mashuperry, turning the Republican candidate into a politicized Eminem impersonator.
Will The Real Mitt Romney Please Stand Up (feat. Eminem)
(Thanks, Fipi Lele!)
That was really good.
As much as I’ve enjoyed this one, it’s nowhere near the quality of the work that Rx did with George W. Bush. http://youtu.be/MT0XxtNPVdQ
Another Bush audio mashup was BushWacked, by Smokehammer:
Thanks for sharing that, very, very good. Loved it. But consider, his (excellent) work was more or less cut out for him on that one. These clever, funny and rhyming lyrics are mostly new. I think that says something. Anyway, both are awesome.
Excellent. Very well executed.
This was so good I thought it HAD to be professional – it seems like no one person could put this together for fun. But, apparently, Hugh is an attorney from Australia? Who does this as a hobby?
Ok, if Rx’s Imagine is too much of a cover, try Happy Rxmas and Whole Lotta Love, which doesn’t borrow the vocal. http://youtu.be/E5uBIST59W4
I think “Dick is a Killer” might be my personal favorite.
One of the best videos I’ve seen this year.
Great work. Reminds me of the godfathers of video mashing, EBN. Here’s their classic take on “We Will Rock You.” http://youtu.be/ZwL66lWlByI (this was edited on VHS by the way…before digital video editing.)
This is a work of remix brilliance. I couldn’t resist taking down the text: http://pastebin.com/qpQwAR7X.
