Grab the Kleenex, America. Hollywood celebrities are back with a brand new political video. In “Yes We Can: Your Most Memorable Moments from the Obama Presidency,” some of Hollywood's finest share their own personal “Obama moments.”

Jet-setter Leonardo DiCaprio's Obama moment was—of course—about climate change.

A very serious-looking Leo said:

"When I was at the U.N. and I heard our president say that climate change is the most important issue facing, not only this generation but also future generations, it was inspiring.”

Ellen DeGeneres's Obama moment was much more personal.

“Dancing with Barack at his birthday party,” Ellen swooned.

Tom Hanks was impressed with Obama for normalizing relations with communist Cuba.

Hanks laughed, as he said:

“He just changed all the rules on the table in regards to Cuba, with the most succinct motivation imaginable—which is what we've been doing hasn't worked.”

John Legend shared a touching moment.

“I never cried before, from an election,” said the wistful singer-song writer.

And on it went.

Incidentally, several conservative media stars recently teamed up on a hilarious parody video, titled: “A Special Message to Predictable, Self-Important Hollywood Celebrities.”

As you look back on the Obama presidency, what moment sticks with you?

That question is posed on WhiteHouse.gov/farewell, where you, too, can share your most memorable “Obama moment.”

Better hurry, though—there are only 11 days, 14 hours, 27 minutes and 32 seconds left in the Obama presidency, as of this post.
