The question was addressed to the OP. (Perhaps his beamer class isn't
uptodate or ...).

For easier parsing, storing the string as text stream has the
advantage that the string quoting is omitted.

  \pdfobjcompresslevel=0 %
  \pdfcompresslevel=0 %
  \immediate\pdfobj stream{Hello World}%

And the object should be anchored somewhere, e.g.:
  \pdfcatalog{/hello \ObjectRefHello\space 0 R}
