(CNN) - "Alvin Greene is on the Scene" - a clever YouTube mash-up honoring the South Carolina Senate candidate - might just be the political jam of the summer.
The catchy video ("When I say Alvin, you say Greene!") lays clips of Greene's many television appearances over a throwback hip-hop beat and even takes aim at Greene's Republican opponent Jim DeMint ... in autotune.
"November's coming, it's time to choose, and Jim DeMint should be ready to lose," the song rhymes, doing its best T-Pain impression.
Multiple news organizations, including the New York Times, said the video is an "official" product of Greene's campaign, but Greene says he had nothing to do with it.
"I don't know who made it," Greene told CNN.
But that doesn't mean he isn't listening.
"It sounds good," he said. "Make sure everybody hears it."
It appears the video was created by a San Francisco hip-hop producer calling himself "Satellite High" and uploaded to YouTube by a user called "virgiltexas."
Both men promoted the video on their Twitter feeds yesterday, with Satellite High proclaiming: "when i say 'alvin' you say 'dammit you people will believe anything.'"
The producer did not immediately respond to an e-mail seeking comment.
UPDATE: Jay Friedman, the San Francisco-based producer behind the song, is amused at the attention the video has gotten. The entire concept, he said, was developed among a group of friends "goofing off" on Twitter who had been following the Alvin Greene phenomenon.
"I just like making funny music, and a friend of mine on Twitter approached me asking, 'You wanna do this'," Friedman said in phone conversation. "It was kind of inside jokey thing."
Friedman said the song took about an hour to complete, with some extra time needed to convince his wife to perform back-up vocals. The video, which was posted on YouTube Thursday, was produced by his friend.
He said he was taken aback when the video was billed as an "official" Greene campaign video.
"When we were making it, we were trying to make sure there was enough comedy and parody in it so that people would be sure that it didnt come from the Alvin Greene campaign," Friedman said. "People are willing to believe very strange things when they come from the internet."
