WASHINGTON (CBSDC) – Comedic actor Zach Galifianakis is getting rave reviews for his interview with President Barack Obama, shot for his renowned web series “Between Two Ferns.
If you’re not familiar with Funny or Die’s “Between Two Ferns” – for which, Galifianakis has also interviewed Hollywood stars such as Bradley Cooper, Ben Stiller, Natalie Portman, Charlize Theron – it’s a mocking-style approach to interviewing which is (not) meant to be taken seriously.
“I have to say, when I heard that, like, people actually watch this show, I was actually pretty surprised,” Obama opened.
“Shh! Shh!” Galifianakis shushed the leader of the free world.
In this interview, released Tuesday, Galifianakis touches on all the hard-hitting issues with the
president community organizer – everything from Ambassador [Dennis] Rodman’s diplomacy work in North Ikea, to the continued efforts to legalize same-sex divorce.
With one last parting presidential shot at the end, it’s worth watching all the way through the full six-minute and thirty-second video below.
