White House Correspondents’ Dinner attendees and the rest of the world found out just prior to Obama taking the stage on Saturday’s event, with a seven-minute short (now on YouTube) starring Louis-Dreyfus in character as Veep’s Selina Meyer, and none other than Joe Biden himself.

The video also revealed that House Speaker John Boehner spends his free time watching videos of pandas eating bamboo.
