The video opens up with Excuse #1: ‘I don’t care about Politics.” To which Obama hilariously responds, ‘Look I don’t care about Pokémon, but that does not mean that it won’t keep coming back.’ Obama stressed that the notion of not caring about politics is what people in power are betting on.

‘Here’s your chance to vote for people who know what the internet is,’ Obama joked.

Mid-term elections are just as powerful as Presidential elections. Obama recommended voting early for those who have busy lives, which he promises ‘Is like going to a private Beyoncé and Jay-Z concert, just without Jay-Z and Beyoncé.’

Make a difference and make your voice heard by going out to vote on November 6.
