Obama gets funky: White House releases dubstep video ahead of State of the Union address

Much like its response to the public petition to build a Death Star, the latest video uploaded to the official White House YouTube channel once again proves that presidential administration is at least somewhat in tune (or perhaps in step?) with today’s popular culture.

Rather than release a string of boring press releases and interview spots on leading cable news channels, the White House released a dubstep video to get every one pumped for tonight’s State of the Union address. For those of you who don’t follow politics even a little bit, this is where the president of the United States talks about the current state of our nation and what we have planned in the year ahead.

But while the video is pure dubstep, its actually part of the administrations effort to make citizens aware of the new enhanced livestream available on the White House’s official Website and mobile apps, which will feature charts and graphs while the president gives his address tonight.

Check out the video (embedded above) and let us know what you think in the comment section.
