Robbie Novak, the ten-year-old YouTube sensation better known as “Kid President,” got a chance to meet with actual President Barack Obama this weekend during the White House’s Easter celebrations — and you can watch the meeting of the presidents.

Obama gave Novak, who also starred in the White House’s April Fools’ Day prank, a tour of the Oval Office, even letting him use the presidential phone.

“Let’s make sure not to cause an international incident,” joked Obama, who showed Novak other White House memorabilia, including a telegraph, a portrait of Abraham Lincoln and the emancipation proclamation.

The two also shared some advice: “You’re doing awesome,” Novak told Obama, who returned the favor by advising Novak and kids around the world to always treat others with respect.

“You keep on doing the great work that you’re doing, I’ll keep doing my best and between the two of us, maybe we can kind of get things going in a good direction,” added Obama.

Novak first warmed hearts worldwide with his inspirational YouTube videos, particularly his “pep talk” video which has racked up 17.6 million views:
