Each year, former US President Barack Obama makes his pick of favorite movies and series and in 2020 it would be no different.
And one of his choices that has caught the most attention is precisely that of the series “The Boys”. Known for being politically incorrect, violent, and full of bizarre scenes, Amazon Prime Video’s original production seemed like an unusual entertainment choice for a former president of one of the world’s greatest potentials.
And series creator Eric Kripke was honored and impressed to learn that the production was on President Obama’s 2020 favorites list.
Through his official Twitter account, he showed his astonishment at this choice and went even further, citing some of the most gruesome scenes from season 2, reinforcing his point in hilarious ways.
“Part of me: in a difficult year, it’s a really amazing time for me. I am grateful to Barack Obama.
The other part of me: Can you believe he watched the scene of sitting in the face, finger on gills, exploding whale, 10 meter penis ?? “
Part of me: In a difficult year, this is a really amazing time for me. I am grateful @BarackObama.
