Obama Praises James Flacco, er, Franco
It's pretty awesome to have President Barack Obama mention your name in a high-profile press conference. Unless, of course, he gets it wrong.
That's exactly what happened to actor James Flacco ... er, Franco ... on Friday. Asked a question about Sony's decision to pull "The Interview," Obama singled out the satirical movie's two stars. He just didn't get one of their names exactly right.
A quick transcript of the president's remarks:
"I think it says something interesting about North Korea that they decided to have the state mount an all-out assault on a movie studio because of a satirical movie starring Seth Rogen and James Flacco. I love Seth. And I love–and I love James. But the notion that that was a threat to them, I think gives you some sense of -- of the kind of regime we're talking about here."
Of course, there's already a Vine of the video clip.
