Obama plays Daniel Day Lewis in Steven Spielberg spoof

US President Barack Obama hilariously pocked fun at himself in a mock video that also stars legendary director Steven Spielberg, according to the Daily Star.

The two-minute clip sees Spielberg talk about making a new film about the President starring Oscar-winner Daniel Day Lewis as Obama.

Obama then pretends to be Daniel Day Lewis in full make-up and taking method acting to a whole new level.

He says: “Was it hard playing Obama? I’ll be honest, yes it was. This accent took a while.”

We then see the President practicing his words in front of a mirror as he gets into character for the part.

He even makes fun of his appearance – most notably his ears, as he says: “I don’t even know how he walks around with these things!”
