Watch President Obama do a terrible impression of Frank Underwood

As a longtime fan of “House of Cards,” President Obama just demonstrated his love for the Netflix series in the most genuine way possible — with a terrible impression of Frank Underwood.

Looking straight at the camera, Obama puts on a bad Southern accent to imitate Kevin Spacey’s Emmy-award-winning character to say, “Hello everybody, this is not Frank Underwood, this is Barack Obama. Happy April Fool’s Day. Frank learned it from me.”

The clip is tucked into the most recent “West Wing Week” video released by the White House.

The president has often cited his love of the series, once joking before a meeting with Netflix CEO Reed Hastings that he hoped the executive brought advance copies of the show. And he’s envied Underwood, once telling reporters, “I wish things were that ruthlessly efficient. It’s true. It’s like Kevin Spacey, man this guy’s getting a lot of stuff done.”
