Barack Obama’s ‘Funny or Die’ Interview Hits 15 Million Views

Funny or Die

NEW YORK (AP) — President Barack Obama’s appearance on the “Between Two Ferns” satirical online talk show this week is at 15 million views — almost at Justin Bieber levels.

The website Funny or Die said Friday that Obama’s interview with Zach Galfianakis, posted Tuesday (March 11), will likely beat Bieber’s record of 17.8 million views for the talk show. The comic website’s CEO, Dick Glover, called the appearance a key moment for the Internet, much like Franklin Roosevelt’s fireside chats for radio and the Kennedy-Nixon debate for television.

Obama told Ryan Seacrest in an interview Friday that he figured he’d reached his target audience of young people with a health care message when his daughter Malia was excited to hear he had taped the appearance with Galfianakis.
