Barack Obama's got some "dad moves" and he's not afraid to admit it.
The former president sits down with David Letterman in a clip from the late night legend's new Netflix series, My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman, where he opens up about Prince's performance at the White House in 2015 -- and the dance moves he brought on stage with him.
"This was probably three or four months before he died, and Prince asks Sasha [Obama] to come up and dance, and she’s an excellent dancer,” Obama says in the clip. Prince died in April 2016, at the age of 57. “Then Sasha pulls me up, which surprises me because she always mocks my dancing, but I have dad moves.”
The father of two has perfected his "dad moves" over the years, however, offering advice for struggling fathers. "You’ve got to stay in the pocket,” Obama continues, “because I think everybody in here knows dads who get out of the pocket. And they’re trying stuff that they can’t really pull off. And, you know, they start doing like, karate kicks and all kinds of stuff.”
Obama's interview will run on the premiere episode of My Next Guest Needs No Introduction, which hits Netflix on Jan. 12. A new episode will debut on the streaming service every month in 2018, with guests like George Clooney, Malala Yousafzai, JAY-Z, Tina Fey, and Howard Stern.
