Awkward: Obama’s Car Gets Stuck At US Embassy In Ireland [Video]

The only thing that can be said about a new Presidential video that’s spreading like wildfire is, “Oops!”  While visiting the US Embassy in Ireland, President Obama’s Cadillac got stuck on a curb.  The video’s description says it all—”It might be bullet proof, it might be missile proof – but a teeny weeny curb has defeated the Presidential car!!!!”

The incident occurred during President Obama’s current trip to Ireland.  According to CNN, the President has headed to a small Irish village called Moneygall, in search of his roots.  On the campaign trail in 2008, Obama said, “It was brought to my attention last year that my great-great-great-grandfather on my mother’s side hailed from a small village n County Offaly.”  He headed there to check it out.  However, for many of us the highlight of his trip will be this little car snafu.

The video hit YouTube just hours ago and is currently stuck at 301 views—a sign that it is taking off like wildfire.  And I’m not surprised—this video is hilarious!  Check it out below.  Oh, and I dare you not to laugh.  Awkward!
