Baracky 2 (aka Barocky II) has recently come out, and if you didn’t see the first Baracky you should check it out. This time the creators (if anyone knows who created this I’d love to give proper credit!) used Rocky 3 as the basis with Barack Obama continuing to play Rocky Balboa and John McCain playing “Clubber” Lang (who was originally played by Mr. T.). What do you think about this creative effort to boost Barack Obama in the eyes of the online audience?
