Every kid who was school-bound in the mid-to-late 1990’s knows the anthem that defined a generation. No, it wasn’t Bob Dylan or The Beatles, it was the opening theme song to the Pokemon anime series.

That song was performed by Jason Paige who also appeared in the song “Viridian City” and the “PokeRap”, but his career isn’t exclusive to Pokemon. Paige also worked with Michael Jackson on “Black or White” (he does the solo part that Macaulay Culkin dances to in the video clip) and even worked on the movie “Meet the Spartans” where he voiced the role of Buttmeister.

Paige recently uploaded a new song to YouTube; a parody of the Pokemon Theme Song he sang all those years ago with it’s message backing US Presidential candidate, Ron Paul. Paul’s strict focus on the American constitution has caused the mainstream media to largely ignore his campaign since, it’s believed, the constitution would make many of the other candidates’ policies illegal, such as invading foreign countries. Paul also has less funding than other campaigners; Barak Obama is the President of the United States, and Mitt Romney is a billionaire.
