I really regret doing this," Hillary Clinton declares about halfway through her new Between Two Ferns interview with Zach Galifianakis. But of course, that’s more than a bit disingenuous, as the five-and-a-half minute video below will surely prove to be among her best bits of marketing for the upcoming presidential election.
President Obama famously sat down for a Between Two Ferns interview in 2014, in what turned out to be an ad for Healthcare.gov. (That video ended up winning a slew of ad awards.) Likewise, the new video, from Funny or Die, is a sly bit of advertising for the Democratic presidential nominee. It’s peppered with Trump insults, and even the jokes about Clinton—from her wardrobe to her email use—feel pretty friendly.
Even the Trump campaign commercial that runs toward the end of the interview undermines the Republican. Now, Zach really just needs to get Trump on the show.
