(ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: The White House pulled off an April Fool's Day prank on Monday (April 1) with the help of a nine-year old YouTube sensation known as Kid President. It started with a tweet from the White House announcing a "special video message from the President." Viewers who tuned in to the White House website to listen to the president were taken to a video that opened with the familiar shot of the White House briefing room typically used by spokesperson Jay Carney, and sometimes President Barack Obama himself, to address the White House press corps. Kid President, whose real name is Robby Novak, then rises from behind the podium to tell viewers they've been pranked.
