When President Obama mimics your move, it's gold.
Now Obama's got his own Single Ladies viral video. Kinda. Be patient: it is at the 7min 15 second mark of the video.
John Legend recorded this video from the celebrity meet and greet at January 18th's Inaugural ball.
From Legend's article in Vibe Magazine, 'As Obama was giving warm hugs to B, Blige and Latifah. Michelle Obama walked up and said, "Mr. President, you didn't tell Beyoncé about 'Single Ladies'? Your rendition?"
The Commander in Cool laughed and said, "I'm not like Justin Timberlake; I didn't put on the outfit," referring to JT's now-infamous "Single Ladies" turn in a leotard on "Saturday Night Live." "But, I didn't want my girls thinking that I couldn't, you know ... I got a little something."
Obama's hand wave is nothing short of pro. He must have had help.
