The White House had a little April Fools' Day fun this morning, with the help of Kid President.

It all began with a tweet from the official White House twitter feed telling everyone to be on the lookout. "At 10:00 a.m. ET, the White House will release a special video message from the President," it read.

When viewers tuned in online, they saw the White House briefing room and heard "Hail to the Chief."

And then…

Kid President popped up from behind the podium.

"It looks like you were expecting somebody else," the 9-year old YouTube sensation said, as he leaned on the podium. "Well April Fools' on all y'all."

"I'm Kid President and I hope everyone has an awesome day!" he said.

Robby Novak, a.k.a. the Kid President, is a special guest at today's White House Easter Egg Roll. "I made it to the White House! I'm here! Peace," he exclaimed as he flashed two peace signs.
