Watch Hillary Clinton's Campy Country Music Tribute, 'Stand With Hillary'

While Hillary Clinton has not yet officially announced her expected candidacy in the 2016 presidential election, someone out there is eager to get the country music audience on her side early. Whether it'll work or not is another matter. 

Katy Perry Offers to Write Hillary Clinton Campaign Theme Song

We all know that most states where country music is most popular also tend to lean right politically, so a new Super PAC called Stand With Hillary has released a country ballad bearing the same name with a video targeting working families. And, well, it's kind of odd.  

Watch it here:

Though the clip was released last month, today it got the Internet's attention and Twitter users have been ready to make a mockery of it. 

 

The track is written by Miguel Orozco, who's only other writing credit with ASCAP is the Obama Spanish Reggaeton track "Como Se Dice...Como Se Llama (Obama, Obama)." And as TMZ directs us, the clip's country musician is played by actor Jason Tobias, who is convincing in the role but will probably hold little weight with true country music fans. 

Bill and Hillary Clinton Musical to Make U.S. Debut

The super PAC is run by Daniel Chavez, reports Fusion, a longtime Democratic operative with experience in former President Bill Clinton's administration and Hillary Clinton's 2008 campaign. He told the website that the PAC's intent is to promote Clinton to working-class people, young people and Latinos, and the country ballad was geared towards men specifically. There will be at least four more similar videos, as well, with one aimed at Latinos and others at millennials. So be sure to look out for those too.
