Sneaky Obama uses Buzzfeed video to get people to care about health insurance
There’s obviously a selfie stick involved.

US PRESIDENT BARACK Obama has teamed up with Buzzfeed in a clever video to promote health insurance.

Always game for a laugh, Obama showed the world the kinds of things he (and the rest of us) gets up to when he’s alone.

Obviously he makes faces in the mirror:

He doodles adorable pictures of his crush:

And, of course, he breaks out the selfie stick in the Oval Office every now and then:

Throughout the video, he pretends to practice a speech on health insurance, encouraging people to sign up to plans before the deadline of 15 February and slipping in some of the salient details.

“In many cases you can get healthcare for less than $100 a month, just go to to figure out how to sign up.”

Sneaky Obama.
