Today (Wednesday), President Obama will participate in the the annual White House Thanksgiving Turkey pardon, a tradition where presidents “pardon” a turkey from slaughter in a White House ceremony. The turkey is typically shipped off the Disneyland to live out the rest of its days.
… White House aides prepping for today’s annual turkey pardoning released a humorous video preview in advance of the goofy ceremony. Shot from the perspective of the pardoned turkey and featuring a voice-over by White House assistant press secretary Ben LaBolt, the film by White House videographer Arun Chaudhary features background music from the classic Western “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly” — with occasional turkey gobble sounds added at key moments.
