Today I have no specific point, and am instead sharing a few recordings that simply made me laugh, oh and it is also nice to note that Obama himself has a great sense of humour.
Now, if you happened to be in his shoes, would you not also be tempted at one point to say something during a press conference that would be fodder to all the conspiracy kooks, and government cover-up freaks out there … well that’s exactly what he did last 25th Feb at a Press conference …
So is this the only example of something like this?
Nope, not at all, he has just last Tuesday appeared on “Between Two Ferns,”, an off-color online parody of celebrity interview shows. This is where comedian Zach Galifianakis interviews folks such as Justin Bieber, Charlize Theron, Natalie Portman, and others who are all in on the parody and play along … and so too was Obama in this surprise appearance.
So what was going on here?
The NY Times explains …
Mike Farah, the executive producer of “Between Two Ferns,” said the website’s creators approached the White House with the idea last summer after Mr. Obama reached out to Hollywood for help with the health care rollout. Mr. Farah said Mr. Obama was a good sport.
“I have to give the president credit that they were willing to trust us,” he said. “They were definitely easier than working with most Hollywood publicists.”
