The good people at Barackdubs have put together their latest gem, masterfully re-editing a plethora of Barack Obama speeches to sync up perfectly with Kendrick Lamar's "Alright."

Obama's long been an outspoken Kendrick Lamar fan, calling 2015's "How Much a Dollar Cost" his favorite song of that year. In early 2016, "Alright" also became a frequent protest anthem. Given both the song and Lamar's To Pimp a Butterfly's place in American pop culture, Barackdubs struck gold with something funny that really resonates.

Neither Obama nor Lamar have commented on the clip, which is rapidly approaching 750,000 views. Barackdubs creator Fadi Saleh says of the upcoming administration that he will move forward with dubbing Trump.
