Black Eyed Peas frontman will.i.am has released a monochromatic, multi-lingual, star-studded music video titled We Are The Ones – aimed at boosting the presidential homes of Democratic candidate Barack Obama.
Backed by the pulsating vocal refrain of "O-BA-MA! O-BA-MA!," stars such as Jessica Alba, Ryan Phillippe, Kerry Washington, George Lopez and others face the camera and offer reasons why they support Obama as the candidate's voice is also heard, as is that of Macy Gray and others, who croon his name.
"I would like to see a cleaner Earth for my child that I'm bringing into the world very soon," says Alba in the three-minute video, which debuted Friday. Chimes in Philippe: "I think it's time for a change. I want a better a future for my children."
Previously, will.i.am produced the viral sensation Yes We Can, which generated more than 5 million YouTube hits alone, reports the Associated Press.
That one spotlighted Obama's voice from a New Hampshire speech and provided celebrity support from Scarlett Johansson, John Legend, Kate Walsh, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Herbie Hancock and others.
