President Obama’s call to Harold & Kumar

Here is your obligatory topical video of the day, featuring President Barack Obama, making a phone call to help get out the vote for his re-election campaign this fall.

On the other end of the phone? Harold & Kumar!? The movie trilogy stoners, played by actors John Cho and Kal Penn, answer the call, then laugh at the TV while feeding their munchies. Penn, of course, worked briefly in the White House for the Obama administration. He’ll be holding down some of the online coverage this week of the Democratic National Convention. So it all ties together. Or does it?

Brilliant move? Stupid move? Brilliantly stupid move? Watch the video, then sound off. Roll it!
