"We Are The Ones" -- Another Barack Obama Song

“We Are The Ones” is the follow-up remix video to the Barack Obama “Yes, We Can” Song by Black Eyed Peas’ Will.I.Am.

Celeb cameos are made by actors Jessica Alba, Ryan Phillippe, Kerry Washington, John Leguizamo, Regina King, Tyrese Gibson, Eric Mabius, Tichina Arnold, Adrienne Palicki, comedian George Lopez, and singers Macy Gray, Zoe Kravtiz and Black Eyed Peas’ Tabu. In the video, everybody pretty much chants “O-BAM-A” to the beat. Watch the vid below!

“I would like to see a cleaner Earth for my child that I’m bringing into the world very soon,” Alba, 26, says. “I would like the rest of the world to think highly of our amazing country.”

Adds Phillippe, 33, “I think it’s time for a change. I want a better a future for my children [Ava and Deacon].”

Did I miss former O.C. star Ben McKenzie? He was supposed to be featured in it.

    that was really nice!
    but why are there no asians, Asian Americans vote too!

  • Ava

    Seeing such weird lemming devotion to someone we only know because of what the media portrays and what his team of speech writers tell him to say makes me want to vote for Obama less and less. America, especially its celebrities, loves its trends. Seeing so many high-profile yet inconsequential people flock to Obama’s side makes him seem more like a trend–stylish and applicable at the moment but with no staying power. The sad thought that people will be influenced to vote for someone mostly because celebrities are making music videos about him is beyond worrisome, problematic, and stupid.

    People, MAKE YOUR OWN DECISION. Read the issues, read the history, make a list of what matters most to you and find your candidate on your own. Don’t vote for Obama or Clinton or McCain just because Will.I.Am says or says not to. Don’t vote for a candidate just because your family is or isn’t. Don’t vote for the “cool” factor. Vote for the “right” factor.

    I wish Will.I.Am, Oprah, Ellen Degeneres, and other celebrities would just keep their political opinions to themselves. They are obviously using their widespread influence to unfairly market to their fans and to the voters who don’t know any better than to think absolutely and entirely for themselves.

  • shell

    Ava says it best. Just because celebs are telling you that Obama is the right guy doesn’t mean he is. Since when was Jessican Alba a political expert. Read on teh candidates, learn, and then make your decision, videos like this are just to brainwash you into thinking hes perfect.

    I like the part with the not a president of the top 10 percent crap…cuz “we” voted him in…well ill tell ya what I’m not voting him so by her standards that means hes not my president…sounds pretty retarded

  • Jockie

    Who cares what celebrities think.

    Like we listened to them before.

    OH MY DAYZZZZZZ

    YOU HAVE TO CHECK OUT THIS VIDEO OF HILARY CLINTON AND BARAK OBAMA ON YOUTUBE. ITS SO JOKESSSS!!!

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DMs-p5y6cvo&feature=bz301

  • ME

    OBAMA! OBAMA! OBAMA!

    Yes, we can!

    Obama 08, our only hope.

  • palvasha

    OBAMA IS OSAMA, HE JUST SHAVED. OTHERWISE THEY LOOK EXACTLY THE SAME. TALL, THIN, DARK SAME SAME SAME

  • Miapocca

    Why is the herpes HO so desperate to be Latina all of a sudden and then black…..I guess now she realizes that she cant have the white baby so she has to suddenly represent for the browns..ahahhahah poor crazy woman

  • Grace

    Alot of people are going to be disappointed if Obama wins the Presidency. He is not saying anything new. When he talks about education it’s already like that in Texas. Teachers are already getting bonuses and most of the schools have new computers.

    He won’t be able to stop the war immediately like he claims. He’s just saying that to get your vote.

  • bradangelina

    I believe OBAMA !!!!
    GO AMERICA GO VOTE OBAMA

    NB : who is the cute men (1:11 mm of the video)

    thank you & VOTE OBAMA

  • Ava

    You are a celebrity, shut up. No one should base their vote on what ypu guys think and if they do; they shouldn’t be voting. Keep it to your self. And as an Africian American, I am ashamed of Omaba. Quit trying to be all emotion with people, cause we all aren’t fallen for you act. Every move that man makes and every ‘powerful’ word he speaks is planned to get people to fall for it. Being a democrat needs to quit being a trend cause it’s a stupid one. This is f-ing crazy……. AND as for all the celeb power he has, that just makes me want to vote for him even less. MAKE YOUR OWN DECISION……Obama comes from a muslim family, who are we in war with? Who freakin ran planes into our building because they thought it was the right thing to do for their religion and country….oh ya that right MUSLIMS! IF he gets elected, get ready for your kids to have 12 toes and eight fingers, cause once we pull out too soon, you better believe they are coming straight to America and right after all of us.

  • Here’s The Deal

    I love, love, LOVE that so many celebrities are supporting him. Hopefully this will help his campaign.

  • Tracy

    The more I’m told that voting for Obama is the cooler thing to do, the more resistant I am to it. This video is dumb as hell. And considering how much he’s crammed down our throats everywhere else, it’d be nice to not have to deal with his corny BS on a celebrity blog.

  • Karen

    Ryan wants a better future for his rich children ? like they have anything to really worry about , and you should have thought of that before you cheated on your wife honey I am sure they would have appreciated thier father being faithful to their mom. I can’t wait for the tide to turn on barack he doesn’t have a clue what he is in for. F**ck you Oprah.

  • Raye

    I hope Obama loses after this shit. I wish they would stop telling ppl what to do. Like what Ellen did. You think just because you are a celebrity that what you say means something.

    but anyway that zoe girl has a nice voice.

  • Gabi

    celebrities should be more careful about political bias, particularly because i’m more than certain that at least half of them have no clue what Senator Obama stands for, aside from change. I will not be voting for Obama despite the endless list of celebrity endorsements and hip music videos because he is inexperienced, sexist, arrogant and was the first to get nasty on the campaign trail, though he tries so hard to makes us forget.

  • debbie

    I have to agree with the comments, especially #10. When I see so many celebs supporting a candidate, I’m usually running the other way. Who cares what these celebrities think? I started to get turned off about Obama after the first video, Yes, We Can. People are treating this guy like he’s God, and that’s a scary thought for a politician, because you don’t want to give ANY politician that much power. His supporters are going around harassing black celebs and politicians who don’t support them, calling them traitors to their race, Uncle Tom, etc. So much for a guy who’s supposed to be about racial equality. His whole campaign is based on the campaign of his friend who ran in Massachusetts. For him, Yes, We Can, is just a campaign slogan to get him elected, because it worked so successfully in MA. They’re just words to him.

  • STFU

    Ava @ 02/29/2008 at 2:11 pm
    _______________________________

    Oh please, STFU! The man does not come from a Muslim family. His father was a Muslim, who became an Athiest before he even met Obama’s mother. Obama was raised by his mom and stepfather, neither of whom participated in a particular religion. This “Obama is a Muslim” thing has to stop. The only reason people are saying it is to steal votes from Obama.

    Oh, and he’s been a member of a Christian church for 20 years. TWENTY! Let me tell you, if he was Muslim, he wouldn’t be coming near a church, much less being a member of one for two decades.

    And let me tell you something else, you stereotypical idiot: Religions don’t kill people. People kill people. Just because a group of Muslims did something does NOT mean that every single Muslim is like that. The majority are NOTHING like what you see on TV. You can obviously think whatever the hell you want, but what you’re saying proves to me that you’re a bigot who doesn’t know the first thing about real Muslims. And the TRUE believers are not those crazies you see in the news.

    Hitler was Christian; Does that mean all Christians are Anti-Semitic Nazis?

  • carrienae

    All the bling-bling and shallow celebrity endorsements make this campaign looks so fake and retard. Middle class people are struggling these days and they are showing these celebrities are mostly no longer in touch with the realities of the society.
    Change my a*s….
    Clinton has been a part of many changes for the goodness of this country for sooo many years. Change doesn’t happen with rhetorics. It happens with actions.
    Tell me, what kind of change has this Obama made? Tell me a unique accomplishment that affects the country itself. Tell me one, just ONE.
    Bush on his speeches talked about change and unity, stupid people believed and made him the president. Obama is doing the same way, too (but I hope he’ll not become the president). If you love this country with all your heart, Hillary is the one who can make the change. She doesn’t just talk the talk but she walks the talk and will fight to the fullest to make things happen.
    Madam Hillary Rodham Clinton for President 2008!!!!

  • Bianca

    THANK YOU BECAUSE THIS IS A SIGN THAT OBAMA WILL LOSE. Once idiotic celebs do lefty nuts and act like politicians America hates them more and goes the other way. What the tabloids and liberal one sided media preaches does not represent the entire American population.

  • John

    I HATE CELEBRITIES! forget will.i.am. I am tired of his support for obamamamamama.

    i hate it when people try to tell me how to vote. I cant stand Jessica “dont call me latina” alba. Way to represent the hispanic vote, retard! u dont even vote with your own race (hispanics love the clintons)

  • brendon

    haha now thats stupid beyond point
    so corny

  • Addie

    I agree with what # 26 said.

    In addition to what # 26 said, I think people who make a big deal about Obama supposedly being a Muslim has issues. This just goes to prove that some people are closeted bigots. Quite frankly, it’s sad to see what is happening in our country. Some of you people seriously need to wake up and stop with all of these bigotry, hatred, and ignorance. Vote for who you want to vote for but, do it because you actually believe that that person is capable of doing their job and actually making a positive change for our country, not because of their gender, personal beliefs, race, etc.

  • lol

    The next President will still be a Republican no matter how much the media feeds us Clinton and Obama.

    Protestants – 51% in this country

    Catholics – 31%

    Other religions – 16 %

    People that abandoned their childhood religion and convert to another – 23%

    Conservatives and Evangelicals still dominate this country not Hollywood and liberal wackos that have no morals and values.

    These celebs and Anti Americans celebs know nothing about what’s really going on domestically and internationally.
    I bet most of them cant even tell where Iran,Turkey and Pakistan are in the maps.

  • Jana

    Okay, some of you people are idiots. Do you not realize that it’s your choice? I mean, so fucking what if these celebrities are endorsing so and so. Why fucking waste all your time and energy bitching about how these celebrities are voicing their opinion? At the end of the day, it’s still YOUR choice. People who allow themselves to be persuaded by celebrity endorsements are idiots but it’s not your problem. It’s theirs so get fucking over it!

  • CMAR

    TO AVA, SHELL, PALVASHA, MIAPOCCA, TRACY, DEBBIE……….

    Here’s a thought:
    F E A R is a very powerful, crippling thing. i know that. Millions of human beings all over the world fail to live up to their own potential because they are full of fear of everything new and different.

    And the way they handle it and the feeling of shame that comes with it is to lash out at others.

    Stepping out of one’s comfort zone is a pretty fearful contemplation.
    I know that.
    Bigotry and holding preconceived notions about others whom we dont know, have never met and probably will never meet; self-doubt; failure to find one’s own passion; resentment of others who have done so………….all of these are very ordinary, human experiences. As a direct result of fear.

    However, no human being who has ever achieved any measure of success in life (academic, professional, financial, social; in love, in friendships, etc.) has ever done so by hanging on to the things that hold us back, FEAR being the most powerful of such things that hold us back from achieving our goals.

    These celebs who have chosen to do this song to show their support for Obama, are not telling you what YOU should do. There are merely telling you what THEY have each done (that is, they have obviously come to the conclusion that they wil be voting for Obama and they have also mentioned some of the reasons why).

    In the final analysis, we all must come to our own decisions.
    So dont hate on those who have. It doesnt make you look good. the mere fact that you have clicked on the video and watched it, means that you wanted to see it. if you dont agree with them, then dont.

    But your trashing these people to show how much you disagree with them, tells the rest of us that you are governed by your fears; that you are one of life’s millions of failed human beings – too cowered by fear and its sibbling – hatred – to step outside your tiny box; too satisfied with the little that you already know, to explore any new horizons, etc.

    Its a pretty sad sight to see human beings limit themselves like you guys are doing right now.

    But hey, dont take my word for it. Visit with yourself some time when you can take a break away from the internet and other people’s lives, to check in on your own.

  • Shani

    Thank you Jana. Celebrities trying to endorse NOBAMA are idiots.

    Go hillary!

    Jessica “Dont Call me latina” is against her own race! Hispanics are all voting for clinton. Shame on you Jessica.

  • maddyboy

    I think it is hilarious (and ironic) that a lot of you are talking shit about these artists, celebrities, whatever you want to label them for speaking up and taking part in a nationwide effort for change…particularly when you all visit this site for celeb gossip and dirt.

    If you don’t give a fuck about celebrities or what they have to say, then why do you even visit this site?

    Damn.

  • Jana

    Shani, I don’t think you got what I said. I meant that people who are bitching over these celebrity endorsements are idiots! They are entitled to voice their opinion and tell the world who they’re going to vote for; and by them doing that, it doesn’t necessarily mean that others have to follow their lead and vote for who they’re voting for. Like I said, as well as CMAR, it’s still YOUR choice. Therefore, I don’t think it’s right for people to come on here and bitch and moan about how Jessica Alba and whoever else, has chosen to vote for Obama. At the end of the day, it’s still YOUR choice and if people foolish enough to let their endorsement persuade them then that’s their prerogative. It’s not your problem. Just worry about making YOUR own choice; not others’.

    Im laughing last year when I saw Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams all over Al Gore and getting advice from him.

    This Hollywood folks are so stupid on change and hating America when little they know Al-Queda always targets Hollywood because of the Jews. The National Security never says anything publicly about it not to scare everyone and keep life going.
