As Barack Obama nears the end of his sometimes good, sometimes not-so-good two terms as president, he is developing a healthy case of senioritis. This is good for us, because chill Obama is definitely my best, coolest friend.
On Thursday, a mysterious content source called Crackle released the premiere of the seventh season of Jerry Seinfeld’s Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, in which Seinfeld gets coffee in a 1963 Corvette Stingray with amateur comedian Barack Obama. The reunion reads like two friends from high school (who are now both grotesquely rich and powerful) having a cute reunion.
“What’s your most embarrassing moment?” Seinfeld asks at one point.
“This may be it,” Obama confesses, before eventually sneaking in a plug for Obamacare.
In general, it is very fun to see the two very powerful men screwing around interspersed with oddly artful shots of coffee pouring. Watch it here, if for no other reason than to hear Seinfeld say in Seinfeldian, “The Commander-in-Chieeeeef.”
