Thanks, I needed that. "I think the real Teabag party is here on chat roulette."

His intonation is pretty damn good.

I think Joe Biden would be funnier, but I have yet to see anyone do even a halfway decent impression of him for some reason.

That was great, thanks.

This guy is a way better Obama than the guy on SNL. Why is that guy so bad?

(This guy is easily my favorite Obama. I can't believe someone bigger than FunnyOrDie hasn't snapped him up yet.)

As so often on YouTube, the actual video is only the tip of the iceberg. The sad, hilarious iceberg.

You know famous people get drunk on fancy rich people wine and do this at 4am.

I mean, I would.

Who, this guy? Can't imagine what you mean. Looks just like him to me.

Yeah, he's got that Obama voice down. That's pretty good.

You think he'd seen enough dicks on the campaign trail.

See, if this was real, I would have a LOLgasm and die, because he totally would if he could get away with it, just like he wanted to be the one riding the hovercraft in that other video...

The voice is great, but the guy looks so unlike Obama that I don't think I'd even know who he was supposed to be until he said a few phrases.

Not sure why, but I couldn't get my brain to stop reminding me THIS ISN'T OBAMA every few seconds. But man, some of those kids really wanted to believe!

Call me crazy but I was hoping this would be the real Prez. Still funny.

Huh. I always imagined a sitting president watching me jack off on cam.

I'm no expert, but I think that terrible guy on SNL is on SNL.

Err... Chatroulette is a fairly new service, HB.

Obama on the telegram!
posted by TwelveTwo at 6:39 PM on May 18, 2010


Yeah, he only looks like Obama in that he's a light-skinned black man in a suit. But the voice and the inflection is frickin perfect.

Wouldn't it be funny if Clinton was on the other end?

Um. I think you should modify the "SFW" comment. Someone drops the F-bomb pretty suddenly and loudly there.
posted by ErWenn at 7:58 PM on May 18, 2010


visually, he's got the right facial structure, but this nose is all wrong (and he looks a bit too young) as is the coloration and hair is off a bit, along with the length of the face (hey I know a lot of caricaturists and he is one of the most photographed figures...) But yea, the voice and infection is perfect.

I haven't seen enough of Fred Armisten on SNL to have an opinion on his Obamatude, but he's pretty great as part of the Thunderant sketch-comedy duo (with Carrie Brownstein, formerly of Sleater-Kinney).

This Alphacat guy does have the voice down, though. "I was hoping to reach Americans, but in the process found a lot of Americans reaching for themselves."

(Armisen, no "t", sorry!)

Well, i but at least it doesn't feature any visible penis.

Do any of you linguistic geeks have a term for Obama's particular brand of inflection?

I ran into Snoop Dogg there a couple weeks ago. Blew my mind. Talked with him for a minute. Nice guy. He was looking for naked women with a bunch of his friends, so I couldn't in good conscience hold up his search. It was a week or so after he was on Lopez tonight playing Chatroulette Bingo.
