Cool Videos: Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis and...President Obama?

Mar. 11, 2014by:

Well now...the reaction to this should be interesting...

Zach Galifianakis' long-running interview show on Funny or Die, Between Two Ferns, just got a presidential upgrade. So far, Galifianakis has had on a ton of A-list talent, including Ben Stiller, Natalie Portman, Bruce Willis, Bradley Cooper, Sean Penn, Steve Carell, Samuel L. Jackson, and many more. Now, THE HANGOVER star has the most unexpected guest of all: President Obama. No, not an actor playing President Obama, but THE President of the United States, Barack Obama. Of course, the natural question of "why would he guest on a staged interview prank show?" comes to mind and once you see the video it's clear. I'm going to sidestep the politics of big prez's appearance here and just let you take a gander. It's a little surreal and sure to stir up some dust on the political blogs today. Lucky for us, we're just here to talk about movies. Right?

Zach Galifianakis will next be seen in MUPPETS MOST WANTED on March 21, 2014.

Extra Tidbit: If Galifianakis could get Putin on next, that would be a hell of a follow-up...

Not the best, nor worst, of these shows. I respect the differing political views held by the people who visit this site, but it's on here because of Zach Galifianakis, not Obama. JoBlo has dutifuly shared every one of these shows for years now. Damn right this video is political, but the fact that it is political is not the reason it's being shared on this site. Personally, I think Obama was trying a little too hard to match Galifianakis' wit. The PResident can be a funny guy with his

The PResident can be a funny guy with his off-the-cuff remarks, so ironically his plug was the best part of the interview, because he had to ease off Zach long enough to get the word out.

I think its funny to think that by posting a video which contains a politician not just any politician, but the president. And to think that none of the comments were going to be about politics, and like bubba says to use a platform in order to sell an ideal or product. I think it is quiet naive to think that politics will not be spoken about on this site when politics is creeping into the mainstream media and can be the main plot device for a movie.

Movies, not politics

As I mentioned in the article and many of you have mentioned below, we're a movie site, not a political blog. No place for political rants. We've posted a ton of these Between Two Ferns vids before and they usually go off without a hitch. However, I most certainly know that anytime something political ekes its way into something entertaining it can cause a rift. I'm not here to judge either way, but I am here to keep us on course and that's talkin' movies, tv, entertainment, boobies, and pretty

I'm not here to judge either way, but I am here to keep us on course and that's talkin' movies, tv, entertainment, boobies, and pretty much everything along those lines and minus politics or religion. So, let's have a clean game and get back to hating on Fantastic Four, shall we? Thanks, all.

THAT WAS AMAZIN

That was really clever, and very funny. That made my day. He tried his hardest not to laugh too. IDC what anyone said's yes he's done some silly things but hes still a cool ass president.

Blah

I lean more conservative and I'm not a fan of Obama, but I did have some laughs watching it. The zune line was good. I honestly though can't stand politics or talking about them cause it causes instant chaos. That's one of the great things about this site is that it's not only about one of my favorite things (film), but also a great place to communicate with fellow movie lovers, and most importantly usually politics free.

So let's get back to the movie talk and leave all the politics talk

It's just a fucking video. Please take this political back and forth bullshit to the Daily Caller or Huffington Post or some shit. All this whinging is fucking up my high. And you're all embarrassing yourselves.

This is a funny video but I always hate it when politics get brought to this site. Its very embarrassing reading peoples political rants. The video is supposed to be a humorous way to let people know what they need to do to sign up and judging by every site I go on this is spreading quickly so it seemed to be an effective move.

It's funny enough but......

The bottom line is that while every other interview has been simply a star coming on and doing the comedy bit, this is literally trying to sell you on buying a product (one that so far hasn't been well received). I can't think of anything lamer than comedians (who are supposed to be at the forefront of holding politicians up to ridicule) turning into the guys trying to convince us that they're wonderful.

Seriously, George Carlin and Lenny Bruce (despite being Liberals) are spinning in

Conservative and I laughed. Don't worry though, I'm still a racist because I'm a 1%'er when it comes to his policies. Which is to say I might agree with 1% of them, must be the1/32 cherokee in me...shit, that's 3%. Guess my math works about as well as his.

The others are much funnier. Try the one with Conan, Natalie Portman or Charlize Theron.
