Watch this 360-degree video of the White House, courtesy of Barack Obama
It’s like MTV Cribs, but hosted by the president.

“This house belongs to you, and to every American,” the video opens in the soothing voice of our current president. “What we wanted to do is make sure that everybody had access to it.”
The first shot is taken on the White House lawn before transitioning into the iconic Cross Hall and, eventually, the Oval Office. It shifts between background narration and in-person conversation with President Obama before handing the mic over to first lady Michelle Obama. Viewers are given personal accounts of what it was like to move into and live in the White House, as well as historical background on the rooms that are being shown.
The 8-minute clip, produced by Felix and Paul Studios and Facebook’s Oculus, was filmed with a 360-degree camera. Viewers can see in any direction by moving their phone or clicking on the screen and moving it around. Or they can use it the way it was designed to be viewed—on a virtual reality headset.
This short film is a teaser for a longer version that will be released later this year, according to CNET. The video, titled “People’s House: Inside the White House with Barack and Michelle Obama” is available as a Facebook 360 video and Oculus Video for Samsung Gear VR.
