Anthony‘s officially weirded out…and so am I:
NOTE: The first video was pulled but now is back here:
Pay attention to the messianic cult lyrics:
“We’re gonna to spread happiness.
We’re gonna to spread freedom.
Obama’s gonna change it,
Obama’s gonna lead us.
We’re gonna change it
and we arrange it:
We’re gonna change the world.”
The drumbeat, and the drummers are marking the beat. In the background, the campaign logo with the rays of sunshine added, to remind you of this poster:

UPDATE, Wednesday, 1 October:
Dymphna asks in the comments,
The background — the venue — is most intriguing. Is this a library in a private school?
What’s your guess, Fausta? Someone said an NBC exec is responsible. Do you think it’s his kids’ school. The music that continues long after the video is over is every bit as interesting as the main event.
Ed found the website Sing for Change, which makes it sound as if it was just something that came out of the blue even when they acknoledge that “several musicians…three High Definition cameras (Panasonic HVX250’s), and an AVID editing facility…a RED camera set up on a SteadiCam”, a professional-quality banner and 22 children were involved. And let’s not forget a fully set up website and all those pie-in-the-sky-blue t-shirts, too.
Scoop this.org also found out about music teacher Kathy Sawada,, who supposedly had the brainstorm
She teaches at the Colburn School of Performing Arts, an elite academy in Los Angeles, CA.
The Anchoress has lots more in her roundup.
NBC denies that the Jeff Zucker mentioned at the Sing for Change post is their Jeff Zucher.
Must be a different one, then, if they say so. Would NBC lie?
