When the President needs help, he has a short list of people he can count on. Harold and Kumar are two of them.

The ad for the Democratic National Convention starts with an urgent-sounding phone call, with President Barack Obama telling an unseen person that “there’s a lot at stake” and that he’s “counting on” him or her to get things right.

The camera then pans to Harold and Kumar, surrounded by junk food. Watch below to see their exchange, and then tell us: Did this ad sway you to watch Kal Penn — who, in addition to playing Kumar is the former associate director of the White House Office of Public Engagement and co-chair of the president’s re-election campaign — host the 2012 Democratic National Convention coverage?
