Barack Obama is set to deliver his big speech this week on Thursday night at the DNC, and he’s counting on some of his Hollywood buddies to be there.
In a new video released by President Obama on YouTube on Monday, the POTUS places a call to Harold and Kumar, insisting he is counting on them.
He says on the call;
“Hey, this is Barack, listen, I need to know if you’re on board. Okay, good. Because I’m counting on you. Everybody is. We have to get this right. So there’s a lot at stake here. Just remember that I’m trusting you on this and I’ll see you then.”
After hanging up, the video pans to a (probably stoned) Kal Penn, who is watching cartoons and eating munchies with his pal John Cho.
Kal Penn will be hosting the night of festivities on BarackObama.com.
Penn joined the Obama administration as the Associate Director in the White House Office of Public Engagement after the inauguration back in 2009.
