This pic of the US President could be right out of the classic movie... and it's trending worldwide!

He has that movie star presence, and now it seems President Barack Obama’s had his chance to shine in an impromptu performance of The Sound of Music!

OK, that didn’t really happen, but this picture-perfect “Hills are alive!” moment – snapped during G7 talks in southern Germany yesterday – has given rise to a meme that’s trending on social media worldwide.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel steals the limelight as she appears to mimic Julie Andrews bursting into song in the timeless musical, leading many to literally put words in her mouth.
