The 'last black president' and 'awful things' promote Obamacare (VIDEO)

If geckos and cavemen can sell car insurance, then surely Zach Galifianakis can promote health insurance, right?

That’s what the comedian of “Hangover” fame hopes to do with his promo of Obamacare.

President Obama trades sarcastic jabs with him on the March 11 episode of Galifianakis’ “Between Two Ferns” series, hosted by the “Funny or Die” comedy website.

At first the interview features insult swaps on topics ranging from “North Ikea” to bad movie reviews. It eventually steers toward the Affordable Care Act, though, which the principal viewers of the show – younger adults – need to learn more about, Obama says.

“A lot of young people, they think they’re invincible. […] They don’t think they can get hurt.”

Check out the hilarious interview in the video above.

This farcical public relations project is quickly proving itself successful, too. White House press secretary Jay Carney says the video has over 3 million views so far in its first day online.

Open enrollment for ACA insurance coverage in 2014 ends on March 31. Registration can even be done by phone, the president says in the video, offering the toll-free number.
