President's bin Laden speech could have gone differently

(CBS) - Following the death of Osama bin Laden on Sunday, President Obama gave a speech announcing the news. The speech was a model of confidence, restraint, and calm authority. But did you know there was an earlier draft of the speech - a draft very different from the one that aired? There was even music. Take a look.

"Team 6 rolled up in choppers, it was so cash." It's too bad the president scrapped the rap version of his speech, it seems to perfectly capture the national mood. There's even a Rebecca Black reference!

Spoiler: that's not really Barack Obama. It's comedian Iman Crosson, one of the best presidential impersonators working today. He has a string of great videos you can check out HERE.
