Netflix’s “House of Cards” kicked off Saturday’s White House Correspondents Dinner, albeit on a much lighter note.  In the spoof dubbed “House of Nerds,” Kevin Spacey lobbies everyone from John McCain to New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

Spacey, who also attended Saturday’s gala, could be seen giving a thumbs up to the President after the well-received clip.

The video concluded with Spacey asking everyone “who received an invite” to join him at the Vanity Fair party afterward.

“Mr. President, welcome to Nerd Prom.”
