Obama Man Goes Viral! 2 Million Views on YouTube!

Well, it’s happened. Obama Man, the song parody about President Obama performed on The Bob and Tom Show just two months ago has reached over 2 million views. It’s simply mind boggling!

I have a few other clips that have been posted on YouTube like Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, and Hurricane MOFO, but none of them have surpassed 100,000 views.

2 weeks ago, I got a call from Tom of the Bob and Tom Show telling me the clip had gone viral. “Have you seen this thing?” I don’t know if you’re aware, but this clip has a million hits on YouTube.” Now, it’s a week later and it has reached over 2 MILLION. I’m simply gob smacked.

Since then, I’ve performed the song live at numerous venues across the county to a very positive response.

So what’s next? Well, there’s talk of a more visually elaborate version with revamped lyrics. I guess I’ll just ride the train and see where it takes me. I just hope I don’t have some kind of Susan Boyle breakdown!

Special thanks to everyone at the Bob and Tom Show! Without them, this wouldn’t be possible.

    I really like obamaman. You should do one just on the chaos in medical care that will ensue if he gets his way there. Medicare was supposed to never be more than 9 billio, but it is more than $400 billion now, and we’re set to practice medicine like they did in Romania during the Ceaucescu years if he gets his way. Hellpp!

    Hello, Mr. Morton:

    Yes, I saw the Obamaman song at The Bob and Tom Show, courtesy of You Tube.

    What can I say, I’m Cuban and Irish. I was born in Cuba and health care wouldn’t be health care there if it wasn’t for those darn disident Cuban exiles that kept bringing supplies to the needy in Cuba. As well as soap, clothing, love and support, etc., etc., thanks, overall to the free market and capitalistic nature that comes from the U.S. of A.

    Anything else, just ask…..

    Love. (Ad astra, for my grandfather who lived in Matanzas and held star parties in the twenties and thirties… when Cuba was free… -everyone was welcomed!!!!!!!.)
