1 minute read

Remember the time President Obama sang Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky” or when he busted out Justin Timberlake’s “Sexy Back?” Now the leader of the United States is back with a Halloween song sure to frighten the GOP—Michael Jackson’s “Thriller.”

Hopefully he does, and maybe he even practices the zombie dance in the Oval Office between meetings with heads of state. Despite our fantasies of how the president spends his free time, Obama does not actually sing in the video. But this impressive feat of video-editing handiwork is fun to watch on Halloween—or any time of the year.
