Justin Timberlake sings Otis Redding to Obama
The headline above couldn’t get any more cool-dad if it tried – what (other than a clearance sale at a North Face store) could possibly be more “cool dad” than white-boy-soul impresario Justin Timberlake singing Otis Redding to cool-dad-overlord President Obama?
The short clip is part of a much longer show highlighting Memphis soul at the White House. Timberlake hails from Memphis, as do Booker T. Jones, Mavis Staples, and, um, Ben Harper – all of whom played the special showcase.
Look closely and you can even see the President do “cool dad” dance moves while sitting down! Is there anything he can’t do*?
