In a bold attempt at youth outreach, President Barack Obama has released a new ad for Live From Charlotte — a web-only show targeted towards young voters that with air live from the Democratic Convention — that features him making a very serious and important call to the show's host, none other than Harold & Kumar's Kal Penn. John Cho (A.K.A Harold) is keeping Penn company on the other end of the line, along with a big pile of munchies and a very stoned disposition.

Penn has been working with the White House as an Asian community liaison since the 2008 election. Will they be extending his title to Head of Stoner Outreach as well?
