Obama: getting hepper by the minute

As part of its outreach toward the Spanish-speaking not only has the Obama campaign fashioned a site called Amigos de Obama, it kicks off with a reggaeton theme song. You can download it as an mp3 or ringtone ($0.99?), which is ironic because the hook sounds like it was recorded from a cell phone.

It's pretty annoying, but I applaud this small step away from licensing crap boomer rock for campaign songs, and hope it heralds a return to the days of cornball presidential jingles.

Los Mexicanos como se llama?
OBAMA! OBAMA!
Puerto Riqueños, como se llama?
OBAMA! OBAMA!
Los Peruanos, como se llama?
OBAMA! OBAMA!
