Nothing would want to make me vote less then seeing celebrities Amy Schumer, Mark Rufalo, and others, thake their clothes off begging me to register and vote.
Unfortunately, that is exactly the PSA we were treated to yesterday.
From The Hill:
Celebrities including Chris Rock, Sarah Silverman and Amy Schumer are stripping down for a revealing new public service announcement (PSA) aimed at raising awareness about so-called naked ballots.
"I know what you're thinking — you're thinking, Ruffalo, put your clothes on," actor Mark Ruffalo, appearing sans shirt, says into the camera in the video released Wednesday from the anti-corruption nonprofit, RepresentUs.
"If you don't do exactly as I tell you," Silverman says, "then your ballot could get thrown out."
The au naturel Hollywood stars bring viewers' attention to laws in 16 states that require voters to insert their mail-in ballots into two separate envelopes in order to be counted.
"Naked ballots — you don't want one of those!" comedian Chelsea Handler exclaims.
Other entertainers featured in the unclothed PSA include: Tiffany Haddish, model Naomi Campbell, "Frozen's" Josh Gad, Sacha Baron Cohen as his character, Borat, and Ryan Michelle Bathe.
"This is not a partisan issue; it affects all people planning to vote by mail," RepresentUS co-founder and CEO Josh Silver said in a statement. "We’re grateful to this committed and talented group for making an eye-catching video so that everyone understands what they need to do to ensure their vote is counted.”
And The Daily Beast:
Our democracy has officially reached a new, perhaps historic level of embarrassment. Remember how celebs started posting thirst traps and butt pics last month to get us all to vote? Apparently someone thought this was actually good and helpful—and thanks to whoever those weirdos are, we now have a new video featuring a handful of celebs giving voting instructions in the nude.
Because apparently Americans are not capable of reading basic instructions on their mail-in ballots, Amy Schumer, Naomi Campbell, Mark Ruffalo, Josh Gad, Sarah Silverman, Tiffany Haddish, and others have made a video with the nonpartisan organization RepresentUs to remind us all what color pen to use and how to stuff our ballot into the envelope. (As one might have guessed, all celebrities are shown from the waist or neck up, or are otherwise covered.) Primarily, the video tackles the “naked ballot” issue, informing voters that in 16 states ballots must be inside two envelopes to get counted.
It’s hard to decide which reality seems more depressing: That A-listers think voters are actually too stupid to figure out voting, or that we might actually be that stupid. Anyway, I guess my point is, if Chris Evans’ dick pic couldn’t save democracy, I’m not sure any naked celebrity can."
Now, if this was supposed to impress people, the least they could have done is gotten a little more sun.
But why are these Dem worshipping "celebs" bearing it all?
Because they can't seem to overcome the Republican ticket led by Donald Trump on any substantive level.
They don't have the moral or intellectual high ground.
This is simply an act of desperation and an attempt to connect with the public's baser self as they continue to lose in the arena of thought and ideas.
