Watch: Obama Rides in a Car and Gets Coffee With Jerry Seinfeld

“Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” is a comedy web series created, directed and hosted by comedian Jerry Seinfeld, distributed by digital network Crackle. The series premiered on July 19, 2012 and most recently aired its sixth season.

Episodes feature Seinfeld introducing a vintage car selected for a guest comedian, followed by a drive to a pre-selected café or restaurant for coffee. As of May 2015, the series had been streamed nearly 100 million times.

For the premiere episode of Season 7, which was released yesterday, Jerry takes President Barack Obama for a spin in a 1963 Corvette Stingray Split Window Coupe (of course they couldn’t leave the White House compound), takes a tour of the White House, all while asking the kind of basic questions that I think a lot of us do wonder from time to time about the president. It’s a humorous look at the day-to-day life of the so-called leader of the free world. 

Obama also gets to ask Seinfeld a few questions.
