HBO's near-perfect political comedy VEEP, which has Julia Louis-Dreyfus playing the crass and wily Vice President, made the promo video to end all promo videos this week by getting Joe Biden to take a tour of his D.C. with the actress. The result is spectacular.
The pair are quite a match: Biden in his yellow sports car, Louis-Dreyfus lampooning House of Cards by talking directly to the camera—"Yes, we can all look directly into the camera, Kevin. The point is, you're not supposed to." The video even features cameos by Michelle Obama, Nancy Pelosi, and John Boehner.
The highlight, though, is Biden's headline writing at The Washington Post:
"BIDEN IS RIDIN' HIGH: APPROVAL RATINGS OF 200%"
