President Obama is very passionate about creating mentoring programs for young people, especially young men, of color. His newest promotional video called “The Mentorship” – a feature for his My Brother’s Keeper initiative – features one of the most well-known faces in professional sports today: Steph Curry of the record-breaking Golden State Warriors. What is best about the short clip is the comedic relationship between Obama and Curry even when the President tries to improve Curry’s jump shot.
In the video, we see Obama and Curry doing mundane things like playing Connect Four and improving Curry’s resume. The duo even takes a moment to create a volcano which Curry makes ‘explode’ using chemicals. Obama then says, “that’s science right there!”
It is no question that the video’s main focus is on the My Brother’s Keeper campaign. As the video progresses, the viewer is encouraged to “support My Brother’s Keeper” and “become a mentor” since, as they say, you don’t have to have all the time in the world, be the President, or an NBA star to be a hero in your community.
