But if you haven’t already seen it, this cool video puts Barack Obama’s New Hampshire concession speech to music with the help of an undoubtedly cool collection of performers. The only ones I recognized were Scarlett Johannson and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, but they’re all identified in the credits below the video.
