Saturday Night Live: The Rock Obama

SNL spoofs The Hulk and Rahm Emanuel with their parody "The Rock Obama". Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson actually does a pretty good job here as an impulsive Obama. I already knew he had a knack for comedy after his performance in Be Cool. Maybe Be Cool is not everyone's cup of tea but I thought the movie was very funny and Johnson's performance contributed greatly to why I enjoyed it.

I don't want to ruin it for anyone who hasn't already watched the clip but a very short synopsis is in order. The Rock Obama is not as nice to Tom Coburn, Kay Bailey Hutchinson and John McCain as the real life Obama would be, much to Rahm Emanuel's disappointment.

I'll leave any more spoilers than that to the comments section.
