Lip dubbers gonna dub, dub, dub, dub, dub! Taylor Swift's hit single "Shake It Off" got a new look this week when the video was released with a Barack Obama lip dub.

A YouTube account by the name of "baracksdubs" took on the chart-topping pop hit with a hilarious reinvention starring President Obama. The 90-second clip splices together footage of POTUS, 53, belting Swift's lyrics.

Addressing crowds in speeches and events, Obama can be heard waxing philosophical about the haters who are always hating and even stressing the importance of shaking it off. 

Two years ago, the President gave a teasing shout-out to Swift, now 25, in his speech at the White House Correspondents' Dinner. "We need to make progress on some important issues," he said at the time. "Take the sequester. Republicans fell in love with this thing, and now they can't stop talking about how much they hate it. It's like we're trapped in a Taylor Swift album."

The cut off of Swift's pop-reinvention 1989 album also inspired a second remix this week. "Boom Clap" singer Charli XCX stopped by BBC Radio 1 on Tuesday, Feb. 10, and recorded her own very impressive version of "Shake It Off."

The British singer, 22, put a punk spin on the poppy track. She crooned "I stay out too late / Got nothing in my brain / That's what people say / That's what people say / I go on too many dates / But I can't make them stay / At least that's what people say," over a quick drumbeat and riffing guitar melodies.
