Obama Sang ‘Purple Rain’ To This Kid Dressed As Prince

President Barack Obama, hardcore Prince fan, couldn’t help but erupt into song when he encountered a trick-or-treater dressed as the late music icon at a White House Halloween event.

In an Instagram video shared by the mini Prince’s uncle, Obama asked the boy, “Hey Prince, what’s going on man?” and started singing “Purple Rain” as he handed him some candy.




His uncle shared more photos of the encounter and spot-on costume on Twitter:

To embed twitter, click on the tweet from the source, and at the bottom of the tweet you'll see arrows, a heart, and three dots like ... Click on the dots, then click "embed tweet," then c&p the code it gives you into the post!

Instagram is a little weirder...along the top of your post (if you're in HTML mode anyway) there should be a white box with a black triangle that says "insert media" when you hover over it. Click it and paste the instagram post's URL in it, and it'll populate the code for you.

Okay I figured it out. On the new style it looks like a video camera, next to insert image. It says insert video when you hover, but if you click it there's a tab that says "from another website." That's where you can put the URL from instagram!

I'm still using the old style because I'm resistant to change, and the icon for that is different on my end haha

EDIT: I see where you tried embedding, but it isn't showing the video on my end :/ I guess just change it back to the link to the Instagram post. LJ sucks, water is wet, pope shits in the woods...

I just looked at the coding and you have a youtube link in there?? And then I come back here and it's a youtube video instead of instagram? Check your copypasta :P

I literally just c/pd what you sent me and it was someone interviewing Ron Paul. Legit terrifying.

That makes a negative amount of sense lol, I copied it straight from the successful post on my journal! Wtf...okay just remove the embedding and put a link instead. Fucking LJ...grumble grumble

Not only does that story make me ridiculously happy (I ♥ Obama), but how cute is that little guy? And his tiny mustache?
