President Obama Just Gave an Epic Shoutout To an EDM Superstar

President Obama is certainly one of the hippest US presidents in recent memory, and he just proved it again.

Obama recently spoke at the welcome ceremony of the US-Nordic Leaders Summit in Washington, DC, addressing leaders from Finland, Norway, Sweden, and Iceland.

He praised the cultural, business, and technological contributions that Nordic countries have made to the world, and specifically noted the appreciation that many Americans have for the Nordic countries' exports.

Among those Nordic exports he praised was Swedish EDM superstar Avicii. He also praised Swedish pop act ABBA, plus various software applications including Skype, Spotify, Minecraft, and Angry Birds. He also joked about Finland's incredibly prolific heavy metal scene.
