It looks like President Obama has picked up a few new hobbies.
In a new video for BuzzFeed’s “Turn Up to Vote Week” series, aimed at increasing voter registration among younger people, the leader of the free world tries his hand at five different activities – including the art of making friendship bracelets – that are harder than registering to vote.
Obama started by showing us that attempting to remember every Game of Thrones character who has died is a lot harder than we thought. Next, the president struggled to untangle a pair of headphones, and avoid sounding the buzzer in a game of Operation. Finally, he showed off his balancing skills by stacking Cheerios on top of a stuffed animal.
The president also taught us what true #friendshipgoals look like in the White House by making a friendship bracelet for his partner in crime, Vice President Joe Biden.
“That stuff’s hard,” Obama concluded in the video for BuzzFeed, which has partnered with a nonprofit, nonpartisan app called TurboVote to help make the voter registration process smooth sailing. “But you know what isn’t? Registering to vote. I hope you all understand that you have the power to shape our country’s course. Don’t take that for granted.”
“Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got a meeting with my vice president,” Obama added, proudly holding up a friendship bracelet with the name “Joe” on it.
