A Beyonce spoof singing “The Star Spangled Banner” at President Obama‘s inauguration last Monday will help us forget the lip synch controversy. Well, at least, it can make us laugh for awhile instead of thinking whether she really sang live on the event or not. Below is the video of the Beyonce parody and be the judge.

Bad Lip Reading, which is known for various parodies, uploaded the full version of the Beyonce spoof singing the US National Anthem on its official YouTube channel on Saturday, January 26, 2013, citing tons of requests after they uploaded a smaller portion of it last Thursday, which now has almost 945,000 views.

As shown in the video, Beyonce, who chose to be silent on the lip synch controversy, can be seen “singing” in a weird manner with out-of-this world lyrics like “My dog, you can’t see him. Put your mouth next to me. All night, I scratched your pig.” And the highlight of the moment? The “La Fway” part, definitely.

As noted in earlier reports, Marine Corps Band spokeswoman Master Sgt. Kristin duBois admitted that Beyonce made lip sync of her performance of “The Star Spangled Banner,” and that Marine Corps Band was informed at the last minute that Beyonce will not sing live, adding that he was not informed why.

However, Capt. Gregory Wolf, another Marine Corps spokesman, has another version of the story. Allegedly, Beyonce did not have the chance to rehearse with the band and the pre-recorded version of the song was used instead. But a day before the event, Beyonce uploaded a photo of herself, rehearsing with the band.

Amusingly, Bad Lip Reading did not forget to also make a parody of President Obama‘s historical speech on his second inauguration (also available below), and even when he make his swear as the 44th president of the United States of America in front of US Chief Justice John Roberts. And yes, this will also make your day, we swear.
