Obama turns to Harold and Kumar to announce DNC speech coverage

Harold and Kumar are back, this time appearing in a YouTube spot aimed at getting young Americans to tune into Kumar’s real-life alter ego Kal Penn hosting coverage of the 2012 Democratic National Convention Thursday night when the President accepts his party’s nomination.

Penn served in real life as associate director in the White House Office of Public Engagement during the first year and a half of the Obama administration.

Self-admitted ex-stoner President Barack Obama is shown in the video reaching out to the fictional stoner duo by telephone telling them he needs their help – echoing the Bat Phone from the 1960s Batman series.

“Hey, this is Barack,” Obama says. “Listen, I need to know that you are onboard because I’m counting on you – everybody is. We’ve got to get this right; there’s a lot at stake here. Just remember that I’m trusting you on this, and I’ll see you then.”

The video is one of contrasts between the the President of the United States and the fictional stoners who are shown in a filthy living room fulfilling some of the worst Millennial stereotypes.

The duo is clearly out of it and is shown watching TV surrounded by half-eaten pizza boxes.

This is as if Obama is trying to appeal to those who moved back into their parents’ basements after college and find themselves unemployed without any motivation other than to eat pizza and watch TV.

The duo are best known for their trio of movies – Harold and Kumar Go To White Castle, Harold and Kumar Escape From Guantanamo Bay and A Very Harold and Kumar 3-D Christmas.

The films are filled with marijuana-inspired stupidities like lighting a bong on an airplane, which the people think is a bomb and even evokes stereotypes about Islamic terrorists that Democrats usually are the first to condemn.

One has to wonder where the P.C. crowd was in this selection.

Who knows, perhaps Obama is hearkening back to the days in his youth when he would sit around blowing “smoke rings” and getting high without a care in the world by tapping the undynamic duo of the current generation as a hook for his speech accepting the Democratic nomination on Thursday night.

    Youve got to be kidding me! This pretty much sums up this presidency to me

    Bush dropped the dow jones from 11000 to 8000. Obama managed to bring it back up to 14000, even with the right trying to tank the economy. Ryan opposed the auto industry bailout, which saved the economy from collapse. He would have prefered GM and Chrysler going bankrupt so he could blame Obama.

      Hey Matt, the stock market is not a gauge for how healthy the American economy is! We have a much more global economy now and a lot of our economy is in other parts of the world, so you cannot go by the stock market. People often make that mistake. Under Bush, unemployment was at 5.4% and Obama’s is at average 9%, with some states which have much higher unemployment like California at 11% and North Carolina at about the same. And look at our national debt reaching above $16 trillion this week and continuing to rise. Government cannot continue to print money & spend this kind of money especially when there is a high unemployment and government has no revenue coming in to pay back this debt. This debt will be passed on to our kids and grandkids who will have to have a pretty high income to pay this. Get it now?
