Nine-year-old Robby Novak, who stars in a series of videos as the Kid President, has become an internet sensation and even attracted the attention of Barack Obama.

One video, where the youngster gives the world a pep talk to "stop being boring", has been viewed on YouTube more than 12 million times.

Robby, who suffers from osteogenesis imperfecta, a disease that makes his bones brittle, says: "The world needs you to stop being boring. Yeah, you. Boring is easy. Anybody can be boring. But you're gooder than that."

Robby, who has had more than 70 broken bones and has steel rods in both legs, was adopted by Laurie and David Novak nine years ago with his sister Lexi.

His positive attitude and energy were so infectious that his brother-in-law, Brad Montague, decided to record him on video.

At first, they were just for the family, but once Montague posted them online, Robby's Kid President videos became an internet sensation and even caught the attention of the real President.
