Zach Galifianakis Interview of President Obama on Between Two Ferns Wins Today
If there’s only one video you watch today, it needs to be of the interview that Zach Galifianakis did with President Barack Obama on his Funny Or Die show Between Two Ferns. I’ve watched it at least 3 times and each time, I cackle because it is hilarity personified.
It’s like a shade parade and I’m so here for it. Props to the POTUS for having such great comedic timing. He held his own with Zach.
My favorite lines:
Zach: “It kinda stinks though that you can’t run for a third time.”
President Obama: “If I ran a third time, that’d be like doing a third Hangover movie. That didn’t go so well for you, did it?”
AND THE LOOK ZACH GAVE HIM! And the blank stare that Barack gave him right back. I was in tears!
Zach: “Be short, fat and smell like doritos and try to make it in Hollywood.”
About Healthcare.gov: “That’s the thing that doesn’t work? Why would you get the guy that created the Zune to make your website?”
Zach: “I don’t have a phone. I’m off the grid. I don’t want you people looking at my texts.”
President Obama: “First of all, Zach. Nobody is interested in your texts.”
This was an incredibly smart to way to reach people and talk about Healthcare.gov and the Affordable Care Act (which is the reason why I have insurance for the first time in four years. Plus, it provided much needed cackles. I see what they did there and I like it!
Did you watch the video? What were your favorite zingers?
