President Obama recently sat down with comedian Zach Galifianakis for some laughs at his expense on the FunnyorDie.com web series Between Two Ferns.
“What is it like to be the last black president?” Galifianakis asked the first black president.
“Seriously?” Obama responded. “What’s it like for this to be the last time you ever talk to a president?”
Obama said he believed in term limits and compared a third term to a third Hangover movie.
So why would the most powerful man in the free world come on a webcast to be insulted? To plug Obamacare, of course. He assured everyone that the health care website is working now and there’s even a telephone number but Galifianakis said he’s off the grid… until now. When Obama pushes the red button on the desk, it reveals the show is secretly shot in White House.
With over 8 million views, the viral video is currently the largest source of web traffic to healthcare.gov tweeted White House Senior Communications Advisor Tara McGuinness.
“The President’s interview with Zach Galifianakis on Between Two Ferns was designed to reach Americans where they live,” White House Press Secretary Jay Carney explained. “They watch this show in huge numbers.”
