Presidents. They’re just like us.

The commander-in-chief uses a “selfie stick,” makes silly faces and even says “YOLO.” And like you, the president of the United States struggles to pronounce February.

A new BuzzFeed video shows the President Obama appearing un-presidential as he rehearses his reminder to the American people that the enrollment deadline for the Affordable Health Care Act is Feb. 15.

"In many cases, you can get health insurance for less than $100 a month,” Obama says. “Just go to HealthCare.gov to figure out how to sign up."

It isn’t the first time the White House has used viral marketing to reach a younger audience on the issue of health care. The president's appearance last year on the Funny or Die web series, "Between Two Ferns" was credited with contributing to the final surge in 2014 sign-ups.
