Barack Obama singing Thriller is, obviously, brilliant


It's nearly Halloween folks, so it's time to bring out that playlist of spooktacular hits and get the party started.

But if you think Michael Jackson nailed Thriller, or even perhaps that Ian Brown's 1999 cover was the best, well, you're wrong.

Proving once again that he's the coolest President ever, Barack Obama has given us all a Halloween treat by singing the track (with a little help from baracksdubs). So turn this up and get grooving.

Of course, the POTUS can do it for real when he needs to - what a hero.
