WASHINGTON D.C. (March 11, 2014) — Comedian and actor Zach Galifianakis sat down with President Barack Obama for the comedic interview show “Between Two Ferns.”

In a Funny or Die video published Tuesday, Galifianakis and Obama spar back and forth for more than six minutes, with a heavy emphasis on enrollment in the Affordable Care Act.

Two Western Michigan University grads, Aaron Ulrich and Brian Lane, helped make the episode.

Lane is listed as a cinematographer/editor on the video.  Ulrich is a camera operator.  His Facebook page says he went to WMU for film, video and media studies.

According to MLive, Lane graduated in 2009 and Ulrich in 2008.

In Galifianakis’ comedy interview series, he typically asks celebrities condescending and rude questions, and they often give it right back to him.  In the past he has interviewed the likes of Justin Bieber, Jon Hamm, Charlize Theron and fellow Hangover star Bradley Cooper.
