— -- It may have been the world’s first attempt at a triple handshake.

During their "family photo" at the North American Leaders' Summit, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau attempted to shake hands with both President Obama and Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto simultaneously.

What resulted was a complicated —- and rather awkward -— linking of hands between the so-called “three amigos.” The leaders seemed to recognize the humor in the situation: all three were smiling as they broke away from the handshake.
