Love/Hate's new star does a mean Barack Obama...
…he’s all over YouTube!

LOVE/HATE’S NEWEST cast member Aaron Heffernan is making waves at the moment for being attractive and therefore filling the attractive shaped hole left in the series by Robert Sheehan.

However, there is a lot more to this guy.  A lot more, indeed.

It turns out, Aaron does a mean Barack Obama!

According to reader Ciaran O’Connor:

Aaron Heffernan, who’s been announced as the latest addition to Love/Hate once ran for SU President in Trinity as a Barack Obama impersonator, but had to pull out as he was running miles ahead of the rest of the competition.

Here he is in action:

His impression also caught the eye of the producers of The Saturday Night Show, and he did his impression for them as well.


The best bit is when he says ‘foreign dignitaries’.  He’s really got him.

There’s more to Aaron than a Barack Obama impression though.  As it turns out, he’s all over YouTube.

Here he is with King Joffrey doing in a puppet show (see him around 23 seconds in):

And here he is in the opening credits for a show which had its own Fundit campaign a couple of years ago:


That’s our favourite.

You can see Aaron onscreen with the rest of the Love/Hate crew when it returns.

What can we expect from At Home With the Healy-Raes?>
