Former President Barack Obama is the first guest on David Letterman’s new Netflix talk-show called My Next Guest Needs No Introduction

 In a teaser for the premiere (watch below), Obama talks about the time he showcased his dance moves for Prince:
“This was probably three or four months before he died, and Prince asks Sasha [Obama] to come up and dance, and she’s an excellent dancer. Then Sasha pulls me up, which surprises me because she always mocks my dancing, but I have dad moves.”

Obama goes on to say that “staying in the pocket” is key for dads to dance without being embarrassing:
“You’ve got to stay in the pocket because I think everybody in here knows dads who get out of the pocket,” he explains. “And they’re trying stuff that they can’t really pull off. And you know, they start doing like karate kicks and all kinds of stuff.”

Now, I’ll admit. I had NO idea what he meant by “staying in the pocket”. Here’s how Urban Dictionary defines the phrase.
