President Obama at the 2011 White House Correspondents' Dinner
Directly at the end of a comedic thread about the presentation of his birth certificate, Obama shows his "secret birth video", a sequence sampled from Disney's The Lion King, where Simba is presented to the animal kingdom.
youtube video at 3.23-3.24 min.secs (see the above typography flashed). It's hidden, being flashed for just a millisecond. But, given our heightened sensitivity to messaging, and our ability to parse high-speed information, it seems downright overt.
