Funny or Die’s satirical talk show “Between Two Ferns” has been privy to some big names for their semi-fake interview session but none bigger than the most recent one in featuring the active President of the United States.
President Obama took Zach Galifianakis “spider bait” and appeared between the shrubberies as the Hangover star fired off plenty of hilarious and nonsensical questions before giving a decent plug for the Affordable Health Care Act.
The digs towards the commander-in-chief started on the graphics teleprompter which described the prez as a “Community Organizer” but Obama was quick to counter with, “It’s great to be with you, Zach. When I heard that people actually watch this show, I was actually pretty surprised.”
Perhaps the biggest zinger was when Galifianakis teased how “it must suck not to be able to run for a third time,” to which the president countered with “I think it’s a good idea. If I ran a third time, it would sort of be like doing a third Hangover movie,” he said with a deadpan glare. Who knows how many takes this really took for them both not burst with laughter.
Of course, getting the president doesn’t come without concrete reasoning and the entire joke-fest was just a build-up for viewers to be reminded that the much maligned Obamacare website is fully operational and the deadline for signing up is fastly approaching.
The writers, producers and staff outdid themselves with this one, splicing Dennis Rodman, NSA and drone monitoring in the mix as well. Watch the edutaining skit below.
