Okay, I loved the "Yes We Can" video. But, this one kinda creeps me out a little. I think it is eerie. The background Obama chants gave me chills not in a good way. Not saying it is a larger statement of any sort, just saying I don't think this video was quiet as effective and that it was definitely a lot more creepy.

Didn't have the same reaction as Bruce. I thought it was just as inspiring as the first one.

Perhaps, Bruce, that creepy, eerie feeling that we both got when watching it was triggered by our subconscious memories of similar scenes as illustrated at the video link below.

Music styles change, but the effects—and dangers—of mass hynosis do not—even if there is no similarity between those who inspire it. The comparison is between the led not the leaders.

Michael,

Your a little nuts. You know that right? And coming from me that is kind of a big statement. I could not be more frustrated with the ways that supporters of Obama have turned to demonizing Hillary. According to some of them any rain that has fallen in the past twenty years and each death of any soldier in any context is all of her fault. My point is that it isn't the side that they are on that is annoying is the hyperbole and tactics they are using. Sadly, Hillary's campaign has picked some unfortunate chords to strike again and again and again but, nothing they have done has been as absurd as what you say time and time again. If your intention is to attempt to challenge people to consider the limitations of Obama might I suggest you get a little more reasoned and a little less over the top in your articulations?

Chad,

I watched it again. Still C R E E P Y - if admittedly catchy.

"as absurd as what you say time and time again"????

Two examples, please. We "crazy" people have so many voices in our heads it's hard to keep up.

Thanks.

I like the second video even better. Thanks for sharing the video Michael.

The background Obama chants gave me chills not in a good way.

Agreed. The 1st video was much more effective just because it didn't have that mob mentality on display.
