    Barack and Michelle Obama Team Up With Kid President, Big Bird for Some Important Announcements

    President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama want to make the world more awesome, so they've enlisted the experts!

    On Thursday, the POTUS and YouTube superstar Kid President (real name: Robby Novak) teamed up to kick off the White House Easter Egg Roll's ticket lottery. The very same day, the FLOTUS partnered up with Sesame Street's Big Bird to encourage kids to "get moving."

    In an adorable clip, Kid President, whose "Pep Talk" video has over 10 million views, answers a call from the president on a tin can and string phone.

    "Kid President, looks like you got my message," Barack says.

    "Yes, Mr. President," the precocious 9-year-old says. "I got your message!"

    K.P. then encourages kids to enter the ticket lottery at rec.gov between Thursday at 10 a.m. and Monday. "Kids dancing, eggs rolling. I'm in!" he says. "And you should [be] too." The actual Easter Egg Roll is April 1.

    Meanwhile, Mrs. Obama was telling Big Bird that "no matter what your age, it's important to get your body moving every single day to help keep you healthy!"

    Big Bird took her advice to heart, jogging in place, jumping and dancing in an effort to get moving. She's also teaming up with Nike, Serena Williams and a slew of world-class athletes to make a major announcement on Feb. 28 to bring physical activity back to schools.

    We Barack, Michelle, Kid President and Big Bird would all agree: It's everybody's duty to give the world a reason to dance!
