Are you a fan of Zach Galifianakis’ Internet talk show, Between Two Ferns? If not, you really should be. Never has there been a better time to hop on the bandwagon than to see the episode featuring President Barack Obama.
It’s amazing that so many people still believe this show to be real. Have a look at the comments found below the videos wherever they’re posted, and you’ll see what I’m saying. If you’ve never seen Between Two Ferns, it always features Galifianakis (ok, from now on, he’s Zach in this post) offering up an insolent interview to whoever the guest happens to be. Chances are, if you’ve seen one, you’ve seen the Justin Bieber episode. It’s a classic.
That said, this is about the Commander in Chief: Barack Obama. When Zach gives it to his guests, the guests are free to respond in kind. This is what makes for the comedy. (Sorry to explain this…it should be intuitive…but for some people…) Barack Obama is a witty dude. He strikes me as a fella who has no shortage of insulting one-liners, but he only brazened his incredibly sharp wit while sitting with Zach, between two ferns.
All silliness aside, I will say it’s appreciated that President Obama is willing to speak about serious issues within these viral video formats. Let’s be honest: The vast majority of 18-35 year old American citizens get their news from the web. So, shame on you Zach for fooling us into hearing legitimately important content within your fake show, but kudos for doing so at the same time!
