The White House has managed to pull off an April Fools' prank ahead of the annual East Egg Roll.
The White House Twitter account warned followers earlier to be on the lookout for a "special video message from the president."
Instead, viewers got a surprise visitor to the press briefing room.
The piece began with a shot of the familiar lectern which was empty as the presidential entrance march played, before a small head peeked over the edge of the stand.
"It looks like you were expecting somebody else."
It was Robbie Novak, who plays "Kid President" in a series of popular YouTube videos.
"April Fools on all of you all," he said.
