Presidential peekaboo! Bill Clinton playfully poses with Bush statues

Is Bill Clinton ... hiding in the Bushes?

That's right: We're not talking about shrubs. Clinton was spotted on Thursday posing between giant statues of George H.W. Bush and his son George W. Bush.

Passers-by snapped photos of the silly moment outside of the George W. Bush Presidential Library in Dallas, Texas, and shared them on social media.

Clinton was there to celebrate the 2017 class of the Presidential Leadership Scholars Program. He joined George W. Bush in a conversation on stage, in which Bush called Clinton "a brother with a different mother."

The former presidents chatted about leadership, their time in the White House and life as grandparents.

Clearly, Bush and Clinton are pals, and the photo is all in good fun!

People had plenty to say about the viral snap on social media. Even Clinton himself got in on the action, sharing the image with the comment, "Note: Not to scale."

Some clever commenters were quick to draw connections between the playful photo op and earlier reports that White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer dodged reporters by hiding among bushes.

We're just glad the former presidents have a sense of humor.
