At Sunday's White House Easter Egg Roll, President Obama met Robbie Novak -- also known as YouTube sensation "Kid President" -- and took him for a tour of the Oval Office. "Let's make sure not to cause an international incident," Obama joked, as Novak picked up his desk phone.

Novak also starred in the White House April Fools' prank, which was a video of Novak giving "A Special Message From the President."
