In a web ad by Obama’s campaign, the President dials up Kal Penn — in character as Kumar the stoner — to see if he’s “on board” to support him this year.
“Hey, this is Barack,” Obama says after he dialed Kumar on the phone. “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 is a lot at stake here. Just remember I am trusting you on this and I’ll see you there.”
The video then jumps to Kumar sitting on the couch with his stoner buddy, Harold.
“Who was that? It sounded intense,” Harold said.
“It was the president,” a stoned Kumar said while watching cartoons.
The video, from the Obama campaign, is entitled “Watch the 2012 Democratic National Convention Live on BarackObama.com.”
