President Obama appeared on Zach Galifianakis's Between Two Ferns, to "plug" the Affordable Care Act and encourage young people to sign up for insurance.

They discussed "North Ikea" and Dennis Rodman, as well as what it must be like for Obama to know "what it's like to be the last black president."

"I read somewhere that you'll be sending Hulk Hogan to Syria."

Other highlights included Galifianakis calling Obama a nerd.

Obama mentioned that Bradley Cooper "really carried" all of The Hangover films.

This happened at the end.

Galifianakis said the show is always filmed in the White House's Diplomatic Room.

"Who gave you permission to do that?" asked Obama.

"Bush," said Galifianakis.

And there was this awkward handshake.
