(CNN) - In a political twist off of the music group Gotye's chart-topping summer hit, 'Somebody that I used to know,' some supposed supporters of President Obama are now singing the political blues.
A group called "JustNewProductions" posted the four-minute "Obama that I used to know" video on YouTube on August 4 with the video description: "We could have been so much more than just friends with healthcare benefits."

Opening with the president's 2008 "Change" speech, the lyrics start by reminiscing about the euphoria many Obama supporters felt following his Election Day victory.
"When you won I felt so happy I could die," says the male singer - seemingly not clothed - in the style of the original Gotye video. "It felt like change, and it's a hope I still remember."
Remarks from Obama's speeches are interspersed throughout the video.
"You can get addicted to a certain kind of message," sings the man.
"But college ended, had to pay my rent," he continued. "At least you're the first gay president. But the change I got was that I moved in with my mother."
While the lyrics note some of what the Obama administration cites as his accomplishments, the video is nothing if not biting.
"Because you won and then you cut me off, now your speeches never soar as high as unemployment."
And they don't leave Mitt Romney out, though still focused on what they see as Obama's failure to help the young generation find jobs.
"You took Obamacare so far but you left me like a dog strapped on Romney's car."
"Now you're not Obama that I used to know," the chorus chimes.
Then the woman singer, wearing body paint like the real video, joins, also singing her criticisms of Obama. The male singer is now wearing the body paint too.
"Sometimes I think the peace prize winner shouldn't have a 'kill list,'" she sings. "But you dumped Bin Laden in the sea so maybe it's all good."
She continues by referencing the stimulus package as a metaphor for a failed physical relationship. You get the idea. That segment ends with Obama's now-famous singing of the "I'm so in love with you" by Al Green.
The two singers then turn to face each other for the final chorus.
"In 2012 I need Obama that I used to know."
The video ends with a sound bite from president speaking seemingly about himself, but actually out of context as it comes from Obama's answer to a question about another famed music star, Kanye West: "He's a jackass."
Gotye's hit has received almost 300 million plays on YouTube, with the parody far back but getting attention with almost 20,000 since its debut on Saturday.
