If we didn't know better, we'd call this a campaign ad.

In honor of her 90th birthday, President Obama sent a video message to Betty White, asking to see her long-form birth certificate. After all, she is incredibly spry for a woman of advancing age.

In the clip, Obama writes a postcard making the request to White, then enjoys the soothing tune "Thank You For Being A Friend," on his iPod.

We're not sure how many hipster votes Obama just re-won with this, but considering the write-in campaign that got Betty White a hosting gig on "SNL", it's probably a lot.
