At least, that's what a recent viral video mash up of Obama singing LMFAO's hit single "Sexy and I Know It" would suggest.

"When I walk on by, girls be looking like, 'Damn, he fly.' I pimp to the beat, walking down the street in my new LA freak, yeah," the president raps.

"When I walk in the spot, this is what I see, everybody stops and they staring at me. I got passion in my pants and I ain't afraid to show it," he continues in the chorus. "I'm sexy and I know it."

Edited by University of Tennessee student Fadi Saleh, or baracksdubs, as he's known on YouTube, the video complies bits and pieces of the president's speeches and one particular dance number ultimately creating a viral hit that's garnered more than 1.2 million views.

Video mash ups of politicians have recently taken the Web by storm. Last week, viral video impresario Hugh Atkin put together a parody of Mitt Romney, set to the beat of Eminem's "The Real Slim Shady." That video has gained an upwards of 2.7 million hits in the last week.
