Al Roker looks like he’s having the time of his life at the Inauguration Day parade in Washington.
First, the NBC weatherman managed to score the first post-inauguration “interview” with President Barack Obama, after shouting him down along the parade route.
“I think we can pretty much assume that it’s going to be a failure,” Roker said, before hollering: “MR. PRESIDENT! MR. PRESIDENT! MR. PRESIDENT! HOW’S IT GOING!”
To everyone’s amazement, Obama actually responded:
“It’s going great!” he said with a thumbs up.
“IS THE WEATHER GOOD?” Roker yelled back.
“It’s great!” Obama replied.
Here’s the video, courtesy of NBC:
Roker had even better luck with Vice President Joe Biden a few minutes later.
The exchange — and Roker’s mic drop — are pretty priceless.
