Man, I haven't seen the stealth pantsing move since I was in, like, fifth grade. Of course, that doesn't mean it's not still one of the most classic pranks ever—which is probably why comedy legend Mel Brooks busted it out on President Barack Obama at the White House while recently receiving the National Medal of Arts.

The 90-year-old Brooks, who's best-known for directing films like The Producers, Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein and Spaceballs, among a slew of other all-time comedies—proved that he still has some serious quickness, going after the Commander-In-Chief's drawers like a lion attacking its prey.
Everyone in the audience seemed to enjoy the gag, with Obama even laughing it off—even after it took him years to even realize what the hell was going on.
Look, the United States has a huge decision to make in the next month about its future leader, but if it really wants to make America great again, maybe we should have more Mel Brooks-like antics in the nation's capital?
