President Obama used an unconventional media outlet to promote the Affordable Healthcare Act.

Press Secretary Jay Carney says that appearing on a cult internet comedy show helped the President reach more people. Here's a quick taste of the funny interview with a serious message.

The President's Press Secretary commented on the segment and says it's working and that people are taking a look at the Healthcare website.

"The President's interview with Zach Galifianakis on Between Two Ferns was designed to reach Americans where they live.  They watch this show in huge numbers.  The average video gets something like 6 million views.  I'm convinced we are going to break average.  When I was waling about here we were close to 3 million."

The interview with the President was recorded last month and posted online Tuesday morning.
