The President Sat Between Two Ferns With Zach Galifianakis
President Barack Obama is the latest to sit down for a chat on ‘Between Two Ferns With Zach Galifianakis,’ joining luminaries like Sean Penn, Bruce Willis and Arcade Fire.
During the six-and-a-half-minute chat — which begins with Galifianakis apologizing to the president for canceling “a few times” and confirming his guest’s name from a cheat sheet he’s holding — the pair discusses turkey pardoning, birth certificates and Obama’s role as “the last black president.”
Obama holds his own against the bearded, sarcastic comedian, poking fun at his weight and sternly correcting him on his misinformation regarding U.S. dignitaries.
You can watch the entire Funny or Die video above. Highlight: Galifianakis asking why Obama doesn’t run for a third term. The president’s reply: “That would be sorta like doing a third ‘Hangover’ movie. Didn’t really work out very well, did it?”
