For the first time in the 2012 election, America will get to see its two presidential candidates face off in a debate. Before a live studio audience at the University of Denver, moderator Jim Lehrer will quiz Mitt Romney and Barack Obama on issues relating to domestic policy, the economy and their plans for the U.S.

But the important question — which candidate has the better “Gangnam Style” parody video — has gone unasked. Until now.

There are very few people who haven’t seen or heard of Korean rapper PSY’s massive viral hit video, “Gangnam Style” (in case you’re one of them, click here, quick), and parodies of it have spread far and wide. So in many respects this was probably inevitable, and both videos have their merits: Smooth-E’s Obama video features dancing replacement NFL refs and an extremely creditable Obama impersonation, courtesy Alphacat. The Romney video, from the fine folks at Collegehumor.com, is probably the most elaborate PSY parody we’ve seen and looks like it was pretty expensive to make (appropriately).

Mitt Romney Style:

Mitt Romneys Style Is Better But Only Because They're Making Fun Of Obama In his Parody So Thats Why They Decided To Make It Horrible.

Forget politics. The Romney-Style one is better, by far.

It would be funny if it was actually true. Romney doesn't go out of his way to tell people that his wealthy that's what dumb rappers do on MTV cribs.

The Obama one had better written verses but the Romney one did everything else better

" Heyyy...Wealthy Ladies!" almost had me in tears

The Obama one wasn't as well made, the singing voice at the start and the slow streaming made me stop watching it

 Hi James, What you seemed to have missed out on was the humor was in the satire. Consider looking at it again through that lens and perhaps it will be more pleasing. Best to you.

 What fun! Watching liars owned by the corporations pay lip services to

all of the questions that don't matter and ignore all of the clear

problems that need addressing. Watch First Presidential Debate October 3, 2012 Romney vs Obama Full Speech Video Here
