President Obama Appears in Zach Galifianakis' Funny or Die Sketch


The U.S. president sat down for a painful interview with the world's worst talk show host to promote Affordable Care Act.

President Barack Obama showed the world he could be funny too. The U.S. leader appeared in Zach Galifianakis' "Between Two Ferns" parody show on Funny or Die to encourage America's youth to register for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act on the government's website, healthcare.gov.

"I have to say, when I heard that people actually watch this show, I was actually surprised," Obama said in the beginning of the video before Galifianakis shushed him as he began the show. The president was questioned about pardoning turkeys to North Korea before he was subjected to the question, "What is it like to be the last black president?" Obama answered, "Seriously? What is it like for this to be the last time you talk to a president?"

Obama did get his chance to irk the worst TV host ever by mentioning Bradley Cooper, Galfianakis' co-star in "The Hangover" series. Obama praised Cooper for carrying the movie alone and Galfianakis responded, "Everybody loves Bradley...Being like that in Hollywood, that's easy. Be short, fat, and smell like doritos and try to make it in Hollywood!"

In his turn, Galifianakis talked about the president's figurative son. "But what if your son didn't want to play football. What if he was a nerd, like you?" Galifianakis asked. The president replied, "Do you think a woman like Michelle would marry a nerd? Why don't u ask her whether she thinks I'm nerd." Galifianakis responded, "Could I?" Obama quickly said, "No. I'm not gonna let her near you."

Then the conversation moved to Obama's plug for the Affordable Care Act. "A lot of young people think they're invincible," the president enthusiastically explained before being interrupted by the host on the word "invincible." Obama added, "Meaning that they don't think they can get hurt." The interview ended with Obama pressing the big red button and revealing the interview set.

Obama has been using pop culture to deliver his messages. "We have to find ways to break through," said Dan Pfeiffer, the president's senior adviser and chief communications strategist. "This is essentially an extension of the code we have been trying to crack for seven years now."
