Mitt Romney, Eminem Parody: Politician Gets Viral Video Treatment

Who would think politician Mitt Romney and Eminem would ever be mentioned in the same sentence? Well, there’s a first time for everything and their “union” comes as a result of Oxford student Hugh Atkin. He created a mashup of the rapper’s “The Real Slim Shady” track, off his third studio album, The Marshall Mathers LP, with words rhymed by Romney, who is a candidate for the 2012 Republican Party presidential nomination.

In the clip, Eminem’s song serves as the bed on which Mitt Romney’s soundbites lie. There are some cameos from President Obama along with candidate Newt Gingrich, which all makes for a hilarious end result.

Obama commences the video in much the same way as Em begins his classic track: “May I have your attention please,” he asks. “Will the real Mitt Romney please stand up?”

“Y’all act like you haven’t seen a Mormon before… I’m not concerned with the poor,” Mitt says, though he really doesn’t say any of those things in that order but Atkin’s creative use of technology allows for it.

As for the chorus, which Eminem made so catchy, Romney raps, “I’m Mitt Romney and I’m the real Romney/ All the other Mitt Romneys are just masturbating.”
