President Obama Calls Up a Friend For a Mission of High Importance — VIDEO

ALTWhen the President of The United States of America calls and asks for your help, we highly suggest you put down your cheese puffs, get off the couch, and get going! 

But, of course, if you’re Kal Penn, famously known for his hilarious high-jinks in the Harold and Kumar movies, you may have a different response. In a YouTube video that just hit on the Interwebs, President Barack Obama showcases his abilities to dial a phone and tells the Associate Director in the White House Office of Public Engagement that “everyone” is counting on him.

Counting on him for what you ask? To host the 2012 Democratic National Convention of course! However, it appears that Penn is a little too baked busy to pay attention to the President’s request. And if you’re feeling a little thirsty during this year’s convention, check out our new Drinking game.

Watch the full video below to see a mini White Castle reunion with John Cho and Penn’s nonchalant response the Commander-in-Chief calling his cell phone.

What do you think of the President’s new promo? Are you going to tune into the Democratic National Convention this year? Exhale your thoughts in the comments below!
