Since his swearing in ceremony, President Obama has caught flack for everything from his international interactions to the job market to his Affordable Care Act, but no one can knock him for his cool factor. Take his new video done in conjunction with BuzzFeed, for example. Yes, the video is to encourage Americans to register for healthcare before the Feb. 15 deadline. But that’s not what’s important here. President Obama’s selfie stick handling skills and other quirky things we do when no one’s watching are the real wow factors here.
As Obama is practicing his presidential spiel in the mirror, he can’t help but make the same sort of silly faces teenagers post onto their Instagram feeds. Instead of holding his phone out in front of him for a selfie, he goes for the full body shot of his suit thanks to the selfie stick. He even proved just how hip he is with the milennial generation by showing off his use of YOLO and “Can I Live?” in a sentence. Pure gold. Watch it all go down below.
