Hillary Clinton created a viral birthday card for husband Bill Clinton by teaming up with Kevin Spacey as he channeled his “House of Cards” alter ego Frank Underwood.
In the clip, Spacey’s Underwood entertained himself by prank calling Hillary Clinton because “Washington, D.C. is so boring during the summer.”
“Hi, Hill. It’s Bill. I just want to make sure you don’t forget, my birthday is coming up, right?” Spacey said, pretending to be the former real life president.
“Yes, I know, Bill,” Hillary replied.
The conversation incorporated things like Hillary’s love of elephants and daughter Chelsea Clinton’s pregnancy. But when asked what she was going to get Bill for his birthday, Hillary refused to confirm anything.
“I told you, this is a very personal decision that I will make when I’m ready,” Hillary said.
The video was created for the Clinton Foundation to celebrate Bill Clinton’s 68th birthday on Aug. 19. So, essentially, it was a birthday wish for Bill Clinton from Bill Clinton – a move that would surely garner Underwood’s approval.
