Maker Studios launched “Glease,” a parody video featuring Obama Girl Amber Lee Ettinger and Obama impersonator Alphacat who challenge President Barack Obama to “step it up.”
The vid is the first time both Barely Political‘s Obama Girl and Alphacat appear in the same video, and aims to inspire the president to recapture his 2008 mojo—the inspiration for Ettinger’s “Crush On Obama” video that garnered over 24 million views on YouTube—through a mashup of the musical Grease and Fox’s television show Glee.
The parody is set to the Grease song “You’re The One That I Want,” which replaces the chorus with “you wanna my vote?” The campy vid features clever lyrics and solid production value coming out of Maker’s studio facility in Culver City.
The video is on Maker Studios new political channel PoliPop, hailed as “YouTube’s First Entertainment & Politics Network.” Launching out of Washington, DC at the end of March, PoliPop will feature new politically-oriented shows debuting on Mondays and Thursdays. Check out the teaser video.
