President Obama’s campaign team released a funny new ad this week featuring the stars of the stoner comedies Harold & Kumar. The ad urges supporters to follow the Democratic National Convention live online.
In the 53-second web spot, President Obama makes a phone call as dramatic music plays in the background.
“This is Barack,” the President says. “Listen, I need to know if you’re on board. Okay, good. Cause I’m counting on you — everybody is. We have to get this right.”
The scene cuts to actors “Harold & Kumar” co-stars John Cho and Kal Penn, who served as an Associated Director in the White House Office of Public Engagement.
