A new Facebook page called Bros for Obama has popped up, targeting, well, bros.

(Click here if you don't know what a bro is.)

The page highlights what could be called some of President Barack Obama's "bro" moments, including his 2009 beer summit and a fist bump gesture with Vice President Joe Biden. A mashup of clips from the president's speeches results in an Obama rendition of the LMFAO song "Sexy and I Know It."

The popular picture of Obama fist bumping a janitor serves as the page's cover photo.

This Facebook page has "liked" some fraternities and sororities, particularly ones in the Washington, D.C., area.

An Obama campaign official said the Facebook page is not affiliated with the Obama campaign despite a statement on it to the contrary.

Bros for Obama is also on Twitter: @BrosForObama.

UPDATE: 11:06 a.m. -- Both the Facebook page and the Twitter account have been deleted. The Facebook page was created earlier this spring, but on Monday began to receive more frequent updates and was the subject of several tweets.

UPDATE: 12:15 p.m. -- The Twitter account now appears to be functioning on a sporadic basis.
