The White House Played a Truly Epic Prank on Barack Obama

You'll never look at a ⛄ the same way again.


Nothing says "holiday cheer" like pranking the President of the United States, which is why White House staffers banded together to pull an Ashton Kutcher and punk Barack Obama...with an adorable snowman.

Apparently, White House staff set up that friendly-looking fellow in order to make it look like he was watching Obama through the window. In other words, the president is being fully trolled by a snowman. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

"For the past three weeks, there have been four snowmen on display in the Rose Garden," explains White House photographer Pete Souza on Instagram. "We've been joking that we should move the snowmen a few feet closer to the Oval Office every day to see if anyone noticed. Then we realized the snowmen were too heavy to easily lift. But finally this morning before the President came to the office, some helpful staff—I won't say who—moved all the snowmen so each one was peeking through a different window into the Oval. This photo was taken this afternoon as the President signed end-of-the-year bills."

So, this is fully the best prank ever, yes? Yes.
