President Obama has released a new ad that features the actors from Harold & Kumar receiving a phone call from the Commander-In-Chief who tells the two stoners to be make sure they're at the Democratic National Convention.
Kal Penn, who plays Kumar in the Harold & Kumar trilogy, will host the convention’s online livestream coverage from Charlotte, N.C., on Thursday night
Penn has previously served in the Obama administration’s Office of Public Engagement.
We hope they have a White Castle in North Carolina, ha!
We're not sure if she's planning on running for office any time soon, but she is definitely trying her hardest to make sure that Barack Obama stays in the White House.
The actress is already one of the 35 national co-chairs in the president's re-election campaign and will be speaking at the 2012 Democratic National Convention in September. She'll be one of the few celebrities joining a line-up which is sacrificing star power for powerful women!
MTV does not want to risk losing any viewers to Barack Obama and has decided to start the Video Music Awards an hour earlier on September 6th, the same day as the Democratic National Convention.
The show was originally scheduled to run from 9-11pm, but since the democratic nominee traditionally delivers an acceptance speech at 10pm, the network decided to bump the show up an hour so it runs 8-10pm instead.
At least MTV's younger viewers can get an extra hour of sleep before waking up for school the next day. Parents rejoice!
