With less than three months to go until the US presidential election, disillusioned Democrats have taken to YouTube to urge a return to the "old" Obama.
The parody of the 2011 Gotye’s hit 'Somebody That I Used to Know' posted to You Tube on Saturday which laments the presidents perceived failure to live up to expectations has already had over 300,000 hits.
The pair sadly recall Obama's first term in office, expressing disappointment that the promises made by the president during his first run for the White House in 2008 had not been fulfilled.
Titled 'Obama That I Used To Know', the video sees the man and woman recount their feelings when John McCain was defeated.
"Now and then I think of that election day, November. When you won I felt so happy I could die. Chugged a fifth, paraded in the street And I thanked God that Palin wasn’t Veep," they sing.
However the mood sours as they list their disappointments over the next four years. "It felt like change and it’s a hope I still remember."
"The change that I got was that I moved in with my mother. You won and then you cut me off, now your speeches never soar as high as unemployment."
However the song does not miss the chance to take a swipe at Republican challenger Mitt Romney for his infamous treatment of his family pet.
"You took Obamacare so far," they sing to the president. "But you left me like a dog strapped on Romney's car."
They add: "In 2012 I need Obama that I used to know."
