While prepping for a talk on the middle-class job force, @vp used his first foray into social media to show off a pair of impossibly cool $150 shades.

Vice President Joe Biden just turned up his cool factor with a new Instagram account, aptly named @vp. And his first post? A pair of classic Ray-Ban aviators.

"Vice President Biden's getting ready to head to Pennsylvania with President Obama this afternoon, where he'll lay out steps we can take to train America's workers with the skills they need for good middle-class jobs. Follow @VP for the latest from the Vice President, and the occasional aviators pic," reads the photo's caption. 

And what better middle-class accouterment than a pair of $150 sunnies?

"You're impossibly cool," expressed one Insta user, with others exclaiming, "I love you joe!" and "#instagram won't be able to handle the swagger from this pic."

With this and Biden's glowing skin, we can only say one thing -- Joe, call us.
