The president, looking in the camera, talked earnestly about student interest rates as The Roots, Fallon’s hip house band, laid down a rhythm. Then the camera cut to Fallon in the foreground, where he punched up the message in his own way.

“Now is not the time to make school more expensive for our young people,” Obama said. Then Fallon: “Ohhhh yeaahh. You should listen to the president.”

The episode was taped during Obama’s appearance at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
