Using a selfie-stick, posing in front of his mirror, doodling pictures of his wife Michelle and playing imaginary basketball in his office: these are the things United States President Barack Obama supposedly does when he’s alone.

That’s the premise at least of a video he has recorded for BuzzFeed, the news, pop culture and listicle website, in a calculated and apparently already successful effort to reach young voters.

Like his controversial appearance on the Funny or Die web series ‘Between Two Ferns’ with Zach Galifianakis in 2014, Obama participated in the self-mocking BuzzFeed video, published on Thursday in the US, as part of a strategy to sell his healthcare policy to young Americans.

BuzzFeed shared the video of Obama on their Facebook page with the message: “How did we get Obama to use a selfie stick? Oh, because he wants you to go to https://www.healthcare.gov/.”  Things everybody does but doesn’t talk about, featuring President Obama http://t.co/Kd6qUbauxmpic.twitter南京夜网/6nYMfeKDXv — BuzzFeed (@BuzzFeed) February 12, 2015 President Obama wants YOU to #GetCovered by February 15: http://t.co/GNfbft9Ewv Watch → http://t.co/edMm328sv2pic.twitter南京夜网/Ws1rTHRDC6 — The White House (@WhiteHouse) February 12, 2015The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon in a comedic segment called ‘Slow Jam The News’, where he performed with Fallon and the band The Roots, to promote his policy on student loans.
