The creative force behind “Autotune the News” and “Bed Intruder” has a new Obama supercut music video out, just in time for the inauguration.

Just over one year since crooning the first lines of Al Green’s “Let’s Stay Together” at the Apollo Theater in Harlem, the strange and wonderful schmoyoho has clipped and autotuned the president all the way through the whole song.

Let’s just hope that schmoyoho’s version doesn’t trigger a copyright takedown request from music publisher BMG — something that befell the ill-fated Romney presidential campaign when it published a video featuring Obama singing the same song.

The video below was published to YouTube on January 21, 2013.
