President Barack Obama may have found a way to boost his sagging approval ratings: Sing Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky.” While the track was already well on it’s way to being the song of the summer, now that the President has weighed in, the title is almost guaranteed.

The new video was created by YouTube channel Baracksdubs, who carefully spliced together clips of Obama –no, the president does not actually sing – saying all the words that make up the lyrics to “Get Lucky” in an inflection that would work in the song. The result is an impressive feat of video-editing handiwork that has already racked up over 1.5 million views.

The video follows in the internet footsteps of Baracksdubs’ previous video montages featuring President Obama singing everything from Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe” (the hit song of last summer) to the Pokemon theme song to the decidedly un-presidential track “Boyfriend” by Justin Bieber.
