A group of seniors at Santa Monica High School think it would be cool to have President Obama at their graduation Friday. So they started a campaign hash-tagged "Get Obama to the Greek" by making a video.

Two seniors at SaMoHi, Sam Modabber and Nikki Bell, both 17, cajoled the President to come to their graduation in a short video. By yesterday, the Youtube video had nearly 5,000 views. #getobamatothegreek instantly spread on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram among friends and students. Carson Daly, a celebrity alumni at Santa Monica High School, retweeted the Youtube video.
