It’s ex-Eurythmic Dave Stewart, leading a choir of familiar faces who’ll make you say, “I know him/her from somewhere, don’t I?” Call it an exercise in obliviousness — oblivious, seemingly, to how derivative it is of will.i.am’s two videos, oblivious to the fact that a tribute playing up Obama’s popularity among celebrities doesn’t exactly help him right now, and of course, given its title, oblivious to how much mileage conservatives have gotten from the creepy messianism that surrounds The One. I won’t spoil the surprise (HuffPo has the lyrics if you simply can’t wait), but suffice it to say, Stewart’s got a handle on the devotional undercurrent of the campaign.
Exit question: Where will this end up on Obama’s top ten?
