    Barack Obama has proved time and time again that he’s in touch with a younger audience.

    He’s appeared on several chat shows, made jokes about pop culture and even sang a verse of Al Green. (Oh, and did we mention he’s BFFs with Beyoncé and Jay Z?)

    But even still, we’re a little surprised that he agreed to do this.

    The US President joined comedian Zach Galifianakis on his fake talk show, Behind Two Ferns, to promote the Affordable Health Care Act – and the result is definitely worth watching.

    Obama keeps a straight face throughout the actor’s ridculous line of questioning.

    When Zach asks, ‘What is it like to be the last black President?’, Obama responds: ‘Seriously? What is it like for this to be the last time you ever talk to a President?’

    And when Zach asks if he’s disappointed he can’t run for a third time, his response is pure genius.

    Acutally I think it’s a good idea. If I ran a third time, it’d be like doing a third Hangover movie. Didn’t really work out very well, did it?’
