Bo and Sunny Obama: Future YouTube stars?
The White House pups made their YouTube debut last week in a video with Tyler Oakley and first lady Michelle Obama titled “White House Party.”
But of course Oakley wasn’t there to just hang out with the dogs (though Obama joked the YouTuber was more flustered about meeting the dogs than interviewing her).
Oakley — who has over 8 million subscribers to his YouTube channel — was in Washington, D.C., to participate in a panel for the Beating the Odds summit. The event, hosted by the White House, was designed to celebrate students’ accomplishments. It also aimed to provide young people with tips and resources to better prepare them for college.
“[Higher education] gives you the confidence and skills you need to go on and do whatever you want in life,” the first lady said in Oakley’s video. “To be able to compete for those jobs of the future in an increasingly globalizing economy, you’ve got to have a college education.”
The summit came just days after the first lady’s epic Carpool Karaoke video with James Corden.
