Watch Barack Obama Hold His Own With Zach Galifianakis
March 11, 2014

In a somewhat unexpected twist, President Barack Obama appeared on Between Two Ferns, comedian Zach Galifianakis's Funny or Die talk show last night. Obama was officially there to plug the Affordable Care Act, but he was a pretty good sport throughout the interview, getting some good digs in on Galifianakis. We won't ruin any of it for you, so take a look at the video above and watch the President of the United States showing his comedic chops.  

Of course, Obama is a pro at getting his message out in unconventional ways, having shown his prowess at social media more than once over the past eight years. And he's always been a bit of a jokester — it just seems to be coming out more in his last term.

Just two weeks ago his office released this video supporting Michelle Obama's "Let's Move" campaign to get Americans more active. It's an admirable performance in a well-rehearsed skit.

And just for good measure, here's his speech from last year's White House Correspondents' Dinner.
