Obama Makes Mohawk Confession to NASA

, , , , , , ,


Barack Obama called NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory Monday morning to offer phoned in high-fives for the successful landing of the Mars Curiosity rover. After some initial chit-chat and congratulations, the president brought up the space agency’s most internet famous team member, mohawked flight director Bobak Ferdowsi.

Watch the short clip for Obama’s complete comment on NASA’s style evolution, but here’s a snippet of the transcription: “I, in the past, thought about getting a mohawk myself. My team keeps on discouraging me and now that he’s received marriage proposals and thousands of new Twitter followers, I think that I’m going to go back to my team and see if it makes sense.”

Twitter user @Darth decided to help Obama make a more informed decision about his possible mohawked future with a little Photoshop action.

So, Mr. President, to ‘hawk or not to ‘hawk?
