Who knew that political conventions could make an empty chair and the hashtag #sexyface go viral?
Harold and Kumar star (and former White House staffer) Kal Penn took the podium tonight during the Democratic National Convention in North Carolina, and he wasted no time before referencing Clint Eastwood's RNC address last Thursday.
Penn—who asked tweeters to use #sexyface when referencing his speech on Twitter—first acknowledged that he has "worked on a lot of fun movies," but noted that his favorite job was working for "a boss who gave the order to take out Bin Laden and who's cool with all of us getting gay married."
And then the Eastwood remark came, "So thank you, invisible man in the chair, for that."
Afterwards, Penn listed specific examples on how Barack Obama's policies have helped fellow Americans, and urged everyone to vote.
"We can't turn back now," he said. "I ask all of you young people to join me. You don't even have to put pants on. Go to commit.barackobama.com and register right there."
