Listen up, gents. President Obama has a few pointers when it comes to dating. He’s recently shown his less-serious side from slow-jamming the news with Jimmy Fallon, to singing Al Green during a fundraiser event, and in his latest campaign video released last night, him and First Lady Michelle Obama share memories of their first date.
In the video released by BarackObama.com, the First Couple finish each other’s sentences in a very non-rehearsed manner as they recall the sequence of events during their day in Chicago.
“It was a cool day actually, we spent the whole day together. He was showing me all facets of his character,” the First Lady said about the date, which started out at the Art Institute of Chicago, followed by lunch and then a walk to the movies where they saw Spike Lee’s “Do the Right Thing” which came out in 1989.
As she continues putting the events together, the President adds, “Guys out there, it impresses people,” referring to art and culture and later admitting the date, “got romantic.”
It was the full package that the First Lady ultimately remembered, “He showed all the sides: he was hip, cutting-edge, cultural, sensitive, the fountain — nice touch, the walk, patient.” Then the President added, “Take tips, gentleman.”
The video hopes to encourage people donate to the campaign for a chance to win a dinner with the First couple, as part of their continuing fundraising efforts in this year’s election.
