Original Pokemon Theme Remixed for U.S. Presidential Hopeful
Wednesday, May 9th, 2012 @ 3 AM, UTC -  By: Water Pokémon Master

What is it with U.S. political candidates and Pokemon lately? Now we have Jason Paige, the artist for the original Pokemon opening theme, remixing the song to support presidential hopeful Ron Paul. Regardless of your political views, it’s entertaining to hear the nostalgic song given new life after 14 years! It’s surprising how all of the voices sound exactly the same; it almost sounds like Paige and the background vocalists secretly recorded the song back in 1998 since only the lyrics seem to be different. Though I wonder if he’s violating copyright from 4Kids, TPCi, or whomever officially owns it by rerecording his own song. It raises some interesting legal questions!
