In an attempt to create more buzz for the US presidential candidate, Barack Obama and Indian-origin Kal Penn are seen in a new promotional video. And the video is a MUST SEE.
The video begins with US President Obama making a seemingly important call on the phone to a possible aide. The tone is intense as he speaks to the person at the other end.
"Hey, this is Barack," the US president says. "Listen, I need to know if you're on board."
Receiving an affirmative reply, Obama is heard saying, "Ok good, 'coz 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."
Once Obama puts down the phone, the camera pans to Kal Penn cutting the call, while slumped on a couch watching cartoons.
John Cho (Penn's companion from Harold And Kumar movies) asks, "Dude, who was that? Sounded intense..."
Pat comes the nonchalant Penn's reply, "The President"
"Sweet," says Cho. Moments later, both break into laughter watching the cartoon.
