‘Don’t Vote’ celebrity PSA attempts to stretch thinly-veiled sarcasm for five minutes

October 1st, 2008 // 109 Comments

A ridiculous amount of celebs got together to make this “edgy” video encouraging young people to vote. Here’s the YouTube summary:

Leonardo DiCaprio, will i. am, Tobey Maguire, and Forest Whitaker have created public service announcements to encourage American youth to register to vote. The non-partisan PSAs, produced by DiCaprios Appian Way, were created to engage and inspire young people to register and vote and participate in the upcoming election.

And guess what, kids? They use bad words. Holy shit! In fact, Jonah Hill even endorses getting high and playing Halo. Damn, now I’m totally voting! Thanks, sarcastic stars of stage and screen. If it weren’t for the emotionless face of Tobey Maguire, I would’ve sat at home like a fag. U.S.A!

    To Ben #65: It’s backwoodswoodmonkeyfucks like you (as few of you as there are in the country right now) that dial down the national IQ. If you’ve done any research at all lately, you’ll know that the opposition to Prop 8 is now well over 50%. That’s because people in this state (and most of the country) have progressed, not remained in 1960′s-Alabama. And by the way, where the hell do you live? Single or double-wide? Why the hell do you think it is that the religious right has had no voice on the campaign trail this year? Because most decent, intelligent Americans that support EQUAL rights for everyone are tired of the constant moralizing from pious, self-righteous, scripture-spouting creatins. Jesus, people are jumping ship from their religions left and right because they’ve wised up and discovered that it takes far too much fucking energy to hate people for reasons they don’t even understand. Face it: the social landscape of this country is changing, and pretty soon, knuckle-draggers like you are gonna find yourselves pushed further and further into the most extreme, unyielding red states–and if you have your way, it’ll lead to another fucking civil war. You’ll lose, of course.

    Obama and McCain, more of the same!
    VOTE THIRD PARTY.

  3. The most condescending ad I’ve ever watched. I hate that people only care about democratic values when it’s time to vote for president. I hate that these fucking celebrities bitch about Darfur when the amount of money they make per shitty film could probably feed thousands of families.
    Fuck celebrities.

    biggest load of liberal celebrity crap.

    I’m honestly getting more sick of all the celebrity voting ads than I am of the actually political ads.

    amen law#98 & Matthew#103, amen!

    Most of you need to get a clue. Obama actually wants to make a difference in this country. The republicans are in it for the rich and the military only. That’s not the kind of country I want. The last time I checked most of us don’t make over $250,000 a year not even close. What’s wrong with trying to give us non rich people a chance to actually go somewhere with our life. Obama actually wants to help us get an education. The last I checked, tuition went up every year the republicans were in office. Is anyone even paying attention to the debates. Get over yourself and actually listen to what they’re saying. Think to yourself: What can ea one do for me. I think Obama will be the clear answer unless your military or a rich asshole sending all of American jobs over seas. McCain has proposed nothing that will potentially help the US people. Freeze spending on everything with the exception of military??? What is that?? What about people that can’t afford an education because they were born with non rich parents. That’s not fair. What about people with children with disease. No help on medical research sorry. It’s all going to the military and tax cuts at the top. Your 4th grader doesn’t have math books. Oh sorry, we need to send more money to Iraq. Tough luck. I’ll be voting for Obama. I hope most of you get a clue!!!
