Mr. President, may the funk be with you.
Whether dropping the mic at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner or here dancing with stormtroopers – Barack has the air of man who has taken his feet off the pedals and is shouting ‘weeee!’ as he zips downhill towards the end of his final term in office.
Celebrating Star Wars Day, as the commander-in-chief is seemingly required to do, he and the First Lady got down with some Storm Troopers and R2-D2 at the White House yesterday.
Mark Ronson’s ‘Uptown Funk’ was the track which ushered in May 4th on Capitol Hill, now known as Star Wars Day (may the fourth be with you, etc), with the Obamas.
Tweeting the video from the official White House feed, the geekdom was complete: “Dance. Or dance not. There is no try. #MayThe4thBeWithYou.”
Yoda would have been proud.
