During his speech at the White House Correspondents' Dinner on Saturday night, President Barack Obama debuted what he described as his "official birth video" to his audience.

"As some of you heard, the state of Hawaii released my official, long-form birth certificate," the president joked. "Hopefully this puts all doubts to rest, but just in case there are any lingering questions tonight, I'm prepared to go a step further."

The comedic remarks were followed by a clip of what turned out to be footage from Disney's The Lion King.

After the video was played for the president's audience, Obama took a swipe at Fox News. "I want to make it clear to the Fox News table," he said, "that was a joke, that was not my birth video, that was a children's cartoon."
