Obama Sat Down Between Two Ferns: A Viral POTUS Is Born

comments

We are definitely not in regular ol' Washington, D.C. anymore, folks. The State of the Union is nice and all, but if you really want to get the kids talking, go on the Internet. And, if you really want to get the kids talking, make your appearance viral.

Future presidents, take note: Obama nailed it with this one. He, who invites Bey and Jay over for a casual soiree, sat down with Zach Galifianakis for another adorably awkward edition of Between Two Ferns. (And, when we say awkward, we're talking awwwkward!)

But, why was the president there, you ask? Erm, well, to plug his health-care reform that we people of the Internet should get hip to. That's not the funniest part, though (unless you consider cue-card reading particularly chuckle-worthy). Obama met Galifianakis' jabs with more jabs. "What's it like being the last black president?" asks The Hangover actor. "I actually think it's a good idea," Obama explains in response to not being able to be re-elected again. "If I ran a third time, it'd sort of be like doing a third Hangover movie; didn't really work out well, did it?" The shade of it all, Mr. President! The shade of it all.
