It was probably only a matter of time. After weeks of unruly Twitter commentary, backlash from other secret service members and intense international scrutiny, there’s finally a soundtrack to round out the festering prostitution scandal involving members of the President’s advance team in Cartagena, Colombia. After all, you simply can’t ignore that “Obama” rhymes with “cama” (“bed”, en espanol). Low-hanging fruit? Perhaps, but one Colombian DJ’s response to the secret service prostitution scandal, set to throbbing Caribbean music, has all the trappings of a hit.

On Saturday evening, DJ Jose Quessep first released his song, “Obama’s Secret Agents,” in a Cartagena discotheque. “The secret agents didn’t think about Obama,” Quessep sings to a local champeta beat. ” All they thought about was being in bed.”

Since the scandal broke on April 12, the Pentagon has ejected six officers from the agency and suspended five others. On Monday, a 12th member of the U.S. military was implicated in the scandal.
