Cute Obama Photo Becomes An Instant Hit, It didn’t take long for this tiny visitor to snag the president in his web – or for the result to go viral. When the president met Spider-Man (and other photos), President Barack Obama gets photographed, well, a lot. So it’s a good thing he knows how to have some fun in front of the camera.
In a recently released photo that quickly went viral, the leader of the free world (and recent Time magazine Person of the Year) stands in the White House, pretending to be nabbed by a pint-sized Spider-Man. The photo, which was shared on Obama’s Facebook page, quickly racked up over half a million “likes.” The young web-slinger is believed to be the son of a White House staff member.
It’s unknown when photographer Pete Souza snapped the shot, but we’re guessing it was sometime around Halloween.
We put together a slideshow featuring some more of Obama’s humorous poses. From messing with Trip Director Marvin Nicholson as he weighs himself to doing his best “not impressed” impression alongside Olympic gymnast McKayla Maroney to dealing with the aftermath of spilled yogurt, the photos show Obama as a guy who isn’t afraid to look a little silly.
And whether you voted for him or not, you have to admit the picture of the president stacking LEGOs with a little girl is pretty awesome.
