I finally saw the Barack Obama “Yes We Can” music video today. It’s a pretty amazing specimen—a (sort of) grassroots political creation that has the look of being inspired by a Gap commercial that was inspired by a grassroots political creation.

Of course wherever inspiration goes, parody follows: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yjbknhX383A. (Thanks to Nicole for the link.)
