How uncomfortable will President Obama be?
Surprised at the announcement that President Obama taped an interview with Zach Galifianakis for his humor interview series, Between Two Ferns.
It’s not the ferns that are the issue….although sometimes the foliage does look a little peeked.
It’s the interviewer. Galifianakis who’s acted in such highbrow movies as The Hangover and The Hangover Part II and The Hangover Part III, specializes in making the interviewees supremely uncomfortable. Ben Stiller marched off in a huff. Natalie Portman kept saying “Pass” as he asked her about her pubic hair. And Michael Sera kept trying to get his arm back as Galiflanakis wanted to use it to tickle his thigh.
Only Tiny Fey more than holds her own, to which ZG says, “that’s pretty good. For a girl.”
And why would President Obama subject himself?
To reach young folks who are supposed to be signing up for insurance before March 31. There’s promise of discomfort and also sure to be the most-watched clip ever of Two Ferns.
And if the appearance proves a bad decision, well…
Do Hangovers come in six-packs?
