An Unlikely Presidential Reunion

Cast of Video

Whatever side of the aisle you are on, Republican or Democrat, I recommend you click this link to watch a humorous short video from featuring past presidents giving President Obama a surprise visit. I don’t want to give too much away. It was directed by Ron Howard, shot in 15 hours and highlights the current debate on the creation of the Consumer Financial Protection Agency (CFPA) in the United States. You are thinking how can that be funny? The video showcases Will Farrell as George W. Bush, Darrell Hammond as Bill Clinton, Jim Carey as Ronald Reagan, and Saturday Night Live regular Fred Armisen as President Obama. Dan Aykroyd as President Jimmy Carter and Chevy Chase as President Gerald Ford were a bit of a stretch. For me Dana Carvey stole the show reprising his role as H.W. Bush. According to the New York Daily News, it is believed to be the first time this many comedic heavy hitters have united for a sketch. Ron Howard was quoted as saying, “I felt like I was coaching an All-Star game.” Have a look and tell me who your favorite president was. (Photo: New York Times)
