Lending a hand with the Affordable Care Act promotions, Bradley Cooper reportedly snagged President Barack Obama a spot on Zach Galifianakis' “Between Two Ferns” last month.

According to Politico, the “American Hustle” star visited the White House on February 11th for the State Dinner in honor of French President Francois Hollande and talked the Commander-in-Chief into being a part of Zach’s Funny or Die show.

“Cooper pulled out his cell phone, got Galifanakis on the line and put him on speaker,” reporters Edward-Isaac Dovere and Carrie Budoff Brown wrote. “He was ready to help. Now they just needed to sell the idea to the president.”

Exactly one month later, the interview was posted online by the hilarious website. The conversation covered topics from pardoning turkeys to Obama’s mysterious birth certificate.

In addition, Zach even revealed thoughts about his “Hangover” co-star, and said, “Bradley Cooper… Everybody loves Bradley… Being like that in Hollywood, that’s easy. Be short, fat, and smell like Doritos and try to make it in Hollywood!”

President Obama replied, “He kind of carried that movie, didn’t he?”
