The parody was created for the Gridiron Club Dinner, an annual event held by a Washington journalist organization.
Hillary did an uncanny takeoff of Forrest Gump, which had won the Best Picture Oscar earlier that year. She did the impression saying, “My name is Hillary, Hillary Gump. You can call me Hillary Rodham Gump.”
Hillary donned four different wigs for the video sketch as she parodied famous lines from the film. “My mama always said, ‘Reporters are like a box of chocolates. Too many of them can kill you but the sweet ones are nice ones,’” Hillary said.
While Hillary stole the show with her impersonations, President Bill Clinton also made a cameo in the video and took a chocolate from his wife but in typical Bill fashion, he asked for french fries!
Check out the above video to see Hillary’s sketch and if you want to check out another throwback Thursday video, watch this video of Kanye West and John Legend singing “Gold Digger” in 2005.
