There has been a good deal of speculation that President Barack Obama was in the video for Tag Team’s 1990 single “Whoomp There It Is.” Many websites have put up the video, claiming that the current President was an extra in the video. The rumor got as far as the White House where spokeswoman, Kate Bedingfield said “It’s not him.”

A group member from Tag Team also refuted the allegations, revealing that the man who appears with a Compton hat and large cell phone was in fact, a friend who went by the name L.A. Snow who was part of the group Duce, who had a hit in the early nineties called “Daisy Dukes”

The man who is NOT Obama appears at 1:01 in the video.
