Mirror's Edge - Theme song

This game has one of those fresh new looks I've been waiting for in games. Game mechanics, graphics, and all around production are a welcome change in today's formulaic game industry.

This is the theme song. Really fits the mood perfectly.

McCain and Obama dance off

Extemely funny and well done I might add!
