Hillary Clinton Reaches Out To Milliniels With Galifianakis Interview

The latest episode of Between Two Ferns has taken the internet by storm. Everyone seems to agree to agree that the short Hillary Clinton interview with Zach Galifianakis is hilarious, not matter what side of the political aisle they are on. The interview seems to be gaining so much traction because it addresses Hillary Clinton’s shortcomings in a comedic way.

The interview starts off with the fact that she had pneumonia. It simply lists her name underneath her as it would with any other television interview, except underneath her name it simply states “had pneumonia”.

The comedic interview is dominated by the hilarious Galifianakis, who at one point is accosted by the Secret Service. Flustered, he continues with his off brand of comedy as he asks the Democratic nominee a series of awkward questions.

This viral video comes in the wake of Hillary Clinton’s outreach to millennial’s. The Democratic nominee has had a tough week in the polls, consistently dropping to Republican candidate Donald Trump. Her numbers are especially weak among young people and this video is an attempt to get a boost from that age demographic.

The last political figure to do a Between Two Ferns was Barack Obama. Now the president sits high in approval ratings across the country, which is incredibly rare for a lame-duck president. Hillary Clinton is hoping that the video does the same for her. And the video ends with a bang, with Galifianakis asking Hillary Clinton what is the best way to contact her. “Email?” he asks.
