[VIDEO] Obama to appear in Madden NFL 11

In slightly-bizarre-but-still-sort-of-cool news, IGN’s latest Madden NFL 11 videos reveal that President Obama himself will be appearing in EA’s football game.

The video below shows the cut-scene (complete with treacly commentary from Gus Johnson) you get for clinching the Super Bowl. Obama isn’t seen until late in the clip, but he’s there alright, congratulating the winning team on the White House lawn. It’s not a bad likeness!

Oh, and the last serving US President to appear in a videogame? I’m pretty sure it was Bill Clinton, who showed up as a playable character in NBA Jam TE (alongside Hillary, natch).
