This is pretty hilarious stuff. President Barack Obama goes toe-to-toe with comedian Zach Galifianakis on “Between Two Ferns” — with the two shooting from the hip as they touch on everything from gay marriage to football to Bradley Cooper.

The best part is when Galifianakis — star of the Hangover — references Microsoft’s ill-fated music player, the Zune. Here ya go:

obama-zachObama: Have you heard of the Affordable Care Act?

Galifianakis: Oh, yeah, I heard about that. That’s the thing that doesn’t work. Why would you get the guy who created the Zune to make your Web site?”

Obama: works great now, and millions of Americans have already gotten health insurance plans.

A bored Galifianakis looks at his watch.

It appears that Galifianakis — who starts out the interview with Obama asking about pardoning turkeys — is a bit misguided in his reference to the former Microsoft leader now leading That job falls to Kurt Delbene, who while at Microsoft oversaw the Office division, and it didn’t have much, if anything, to do with Zune.

Chalk it up to comedic license, something Galifianakis has clearly mastered. Enjoy!

    uuuuuu. thats the second big ding about THE Zune after Conan O’Brien’s. Hey, I heard they are going to change Bing to this year.

    Would love to see Obama have an unscripted interview with a real journalist (Glen Greenwald maybe) who didn’t lob him softball questions.
    But Obama doesn’t have time for that.

      All Greenwald does is repeat and repeat the same thing again while ignoring the inconvenient facts. Let’s not forget, the guy actually attacked anti-war journalists for attacking Bush and had nothing to say about drones when Bush killed 75 children in a single drone attack.

    agree with Easyrhino1

    “How does it feel to be the last black president”. Brilliant (and true).

  • nsmith

    Too bad Zune has always worked and is still alive and kicking, so I would say that is giving the Healthcare site too much credit.
