When Seinfeld took Obama on a car ride

Washington, Jan 1 (IANS) US President Barack Obama was seen taking a car ride with comedian Jerry Seinfeld.

Seinfeld kicked off the seventh season of his web series “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” with an interview with Obama, reports aceshowbiz.com.

The show was filmed on the White House grounds because Obama wasn’t allowed to slip past security. Seinfeld picked up the US President at his Oval Office in a classic 1963 Corvette Stingray split window coupe.

During the interview, Obama discussed about losing his anonymity.

“I would love to just be taking a walk and then I run into you. You’re sitting on a bench. And suddenly I say, ‘Hey Jerry, how ya doing?’,” Obama shared.

“That moment when you lost your anonymity… And anonymity is not something you think about as being valuable,” he added.

Obama also revealed the scariest part of living at the White House, admitting to Seinfeld that it was a bit like “Night at the Museum”.

“So you’re looking around and thinking, what the hell is this,” he quipped.

When asked who would be the leader he would love to hang out with most, Obama mentioned Theodore “Teddy” Roosevelt, who was the 26th President of US from 1901-09.

He revealed to Seinfeld that all of his underwear was one brand and one colour and he has a closet like normal people.

Obama later got in the driver’s seat to take Seinfeld for a spin in the driveway of the White House.
