Covering the President on the road: The White House travel videos

When you think of the White House YouTube channel, the first thing that comes to mind is probably the President's weekly address. But recently, the video team has developed a new style of video clips that capture the essence of the President's trips abroad. Using local music as a soundtrack, a speech clip from the President, and b-roll from the President's visits, they're creating some nice, short, punchy musical montages. They're almost reminiscent of the travel videos you'd expect to see on the Travel Channel on YouTube.

See below two such videos from the President's trip abroad, to Russia and Ghana.
