Barack Obama is trying to get millenials to join Obamacare - by using a selfie stick.

The fun-loving President used the popular apparatus in a new sketch comedy video for Buzzfeed, in return for a plug for Obamacare from the media giant.

The video, titled 'Things Everybody Does But Doesn't Talk About', shows the President preening, taking selfies and practicing speeches in the mirror.

It received over 500,000 likes and has been viewed on Facebook over 19m times.

Obama has been experimenting with popular online culture for some time, appearing on 'Between Two Ferns' with Zak Galifinakas - also to promote Obamacare. He recently allowed three YouTube stars to interview him in the White House.
