[Shareables] President Obama just completed a state visit to the UK & Ireland and there have been a number of watchable moments shared on YouTube, but bearing in mind you don’t have all day I wanted to show a couple of my favorites.

These two clips have been hand chosen because: a) they’re both pretty funny and b) they contrast. One clip portrays him as “rock star” material and the other is frankly rather embarrassing. If you’re like me, you’ll enjoy the fact that even possibly the coolest President in America’s history screws up.
