At 9 years old, he has a website, a viral YouTube video, and a mock logo that reads “Seal of the Tiny President of the United States.”

The Kid President’s motto: “Don’t be in a Party. Be a Party.”

His “Pep Talk” YouTube video (see below) has been taking social media sites by storm for the past week, and the message is simple: “The world needs you to stop being boring…. Boring is easy.”

The adorable boy sending smiles around the world is Robby Novak of Henderson, Tenn., who has been posting videos on the SoulPancake YouTube channel since October with the help of his adult brother-in-law, Bradley Montague, the TodayNews website reports. Novak appeared on the "Today" show Wednesday.

SoulPancake, founded by Rainn Wilson of “The Office,” encourages people “to explore what it means to be human.”

Kid President’s take on that includes this comment from his video: “This is life, people. You got air coming through your nose. You got heartbeat. That means it’s time to do something!”

The video, in which Robby is dressed in a dark suit and red tie, weaves together humor, music, pithy philosophical comments, cute dance moves, poetry, and gentle reprimands to grownups.
