In a video posted Thursday on YouTube, Obama appears to relay information via a tin can to the nine-year-old viral video star, saying, “Kid President, looks like you got my message.”

Kid President (who in everyday life is 9-year-old Robbie Novak) tells Obama, “Yes, Mr. President, I got your message. This is historic. The White House Easter Egg Roll. Kids dancing, eggs rolling, I’m in!”

The clip then directs viewers to a site to enter the ticket lottery for the April 1 event.

Kid President — who has dubbed himself “the voice of a generation” and says his executive order is for us all to “treat everybody like it’s their birthday,” — has become an online sensation following high-profile interviews with celebrities, including singer Josh Groban and actor Rainn Wilson.

The videos featuring the cute-tastic kid and originally created for Freed-Hardeman University have gotten hundreds of millions of views on YouTube.
