Steve Aoki shows some support for the President in "DJs for Obama."

The Obama campaign looked past actors, actresses and movie moguls for their newest online video, "DJs for Obama."

In the spot, DJs of varying celebrity are shown working while DJ Cassidy's narration explains their interest in the election. Among those included are D-Nice, DJ Sharada and EDM bigwig and L.A. scenester Steve Aoki.

"DJ's are about motivation, inspiration, celebration -- that's why I think it makes perfect sense not only to celebrate this man, but to motivate to reelect him," Cassidy says. He also provides some suggestions on how citizens can stay engaged in the process.

In recent months, the campaign's YouTube page has featured Beyonce appreciating Michelle Obama and Elizabeth Banks taking Romney to task for his position on Planned Parenthood.

The DJs' video is available above. Below, more examples of celebrities and politicians.
