'Barack Dubs' becomes sensation on YouTube
MEMPHIS, TN (KGO) -- A college student from Tennessee is turning President Obama into a mashup-master.
Fadi Saleh takes excerpts from the president's speeches and edits them to the tune of popular music. His latest creation has Mr. Obama singing Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe."
That video is one of the most-shared and most-viewed YouTube videos in the Bay Area right now. It's logged more than 7 million hits since it was posted Monday. We talked to Fadi about his project which he posts to his Barack Dubs YouTube channel. He's done a few videos and he says each one takes about two weeks to complete.
