Palo Alto, California (CNN) - President Obama can now channel his inner Facebook after receiving the signature "Facebook hoodie" attire of the company's founder.
As an hour long town hall meeting at his company's headquarters drew to a close, Mark Zuckerberg presented the official sweatshirt to Obama "as a small token of our appreciation, in case for some reason you want to dress like me."
"This is a high fashion statement right here," Obama said. "This is beautiful."
With ties loosened and shirt sleeves rolled up, Zuckerberg moderated an event that featured 500 Facebook employees, 200 entrepreneurs and guests invited by the White House to attend. A senior administration official told CNN that Facebook picked the questions.
The questions came from the audience members as well as online users who sent in questions before and during the town hall according to the same official.
Zuckerberg and Obama met earlier this year at the home of venture capitalist John Doerr, where they dined with other tech executives, including Apple's Steve Jobs, and discussed ways their industry could help grow the economy.
