The former president partnered up with popular TikTok creators to discuss the importance of voting.

Barack Obama came to a surprising place to urge more people to vote in the upcoming midterm elections on Tuesday, Nov. 8, and that's TikTok.

The former president of the United States took to the popular streaming platform with a series of videos in which he and familiar TikTok creators talk about why people should go out and vote, tagged with #CreatorsForGood. 

A few of the TikTokers he teamed up with include Mona Swain, @monaswain, Harry Sisson, @typical_democrat, Dr. Jennifer Lincoln, @drjenniferlincoln, Indiana Massara, @indiana, and V Spehar, @underthedesknews.

In a few of the videos, Obama joins TikTok trends while trying to give advice and impart knowledge to whoever tunes in.

In Swain's TikTok, she uses the popular audio of the song "Them Changes" by Thundercat, with an overlay of text on the screen that reads, "If I can't convince you to vote..."
