Obama shares first date tips

05:18, Jun 27 2012

US President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama have shared the details of their romantic first date, way back in 1989, in a very charming video on the president's website.

The video, which was created as part of a competition to win dinner with Obama, shows the couple reminiscing about visiting the Art Institute of Chicago, eating lunch, taking a stroll and catching a movie.

While Obama kept politics out of the light-hearted clip, it's hard not to compare his movie choice, Spike Lee's edgy Do the Right Thing, with the film his Republican opponent Mitt Romney took his wife Ann to for their first date - The Sound of Music.
