Steven Spielberg directs Tom Cruise and an effin’ gaggle of celebs in a horribly meta “Get out the Vote” video

October 29th, 2008 // 132 Comments

Tom Cruise, Will Smith, Justin Timberlake, Scarlett Johannson, Ryan Reynolds, Harrison Ford, Borat, Shia LaBeouf, Tobey MaDumbFace and a shitload of celebrities got together for a follow-up to the “Five Friends” video encouraging people to vote. Jesus, these things have sequels now? At least they got Spielberg to direct. Or, more like, FUCK they got Spielberg to direct. Thanks for the CGI gophers in Indy 4, asshole!

I don’t know about you guys, but this was definitely the last straw for me. I am so ready for this election to be over before Ashton Kutcher tells me to vote one more time, and I strangle him with a Kaballah bracelet. I honestly can’t wait to wake up on November 5th and learn our next president is… George Bush! Who will undoubtedly declare martial law and proclaim himself “Galactic Umpire” while Natalie Portman gives effortless birth to Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia. You heard it here first.

  1. Election is over

    Republicans are pathetic. They have lost and can’t face it. 8 years of retarded Dubya, 8 years of dumb ass Reagan, now they crave another idiot.
    Fools, the cetral bankers run the world. Rothschild, Warburg, Rockefeller, Morgan, etc.

    Idiots.

  2. joe not the plumber

    Hey, gladtosay, thank you for not voting (or doing much of anything, probably), since even just thinking requires too much effort for you. By the way, if you don’t vote, you don’t get to complain. Oh, sorry, did i just take away your life’s work?

    Now, back to the titties…

    hahahahahaa @ 50.

    I love it. you’re so right.

    I saw a shorter version on MSNBS today and the impression it left me with is that Jennifer Aniston is hot.

  5. Natalia

    Yeah, the only good part about this is Borat.

    But to be honest… There really ARE some people who shouldn’t be voting. You really need to educate yourself on the policies of the two candidates and make a smart decision.
    I love Obama, and I’m definitely voting for him. But I’m okay with people voting for McCain, as long as they’re voting for him because they agree with his policies, not because they think Obama is a terrorist.

    Tom Cruise is not voting for Obama…..he will use a write in vote for Marvin the Martian. It is said he is making friends on a sports community ==mysportsdate.com== it’s the real place where hot cougars and milfs hang out with sexy young men!! My friends told me so, gonna check it out!!

  9. ps

    Maybe Ryan Reynolds isn’t American, but how can anyone think that this election is only relevant to Americans? The current American “president” dumb fuck affected the entire world with his idiocy. So yeah, the international community is concerned. I think that’s fair. Why shouldn’t a Canadian (neighbor to the US no less) care about the election? I think the entire world is watching. And if the whole world could say it – they would ask that you vote please.

  10. friendlyfires

    Will Smith, you’re father is full of shit. If I don’t vote, I have EVERY right to complain. You jackasses voted the assholes into office. You jackasses created the problem. Therefore, YOU HAVE NO RIGHT TO COMPLAIN.
    WHEREAS, i STAYED HOME, did something productive, watched you jackasses pick the wrong lizard, AGAIN, I have EVERY right to complain.

    I like one of the candidates, he’ll probably work hard and do the best he can, but wind up disappointing a lot of people but cover up his mistakes with fairy dust and cellophane and you all will buy that crap.

    BUT I’M NOT VOTING.

    You know what happened when the liberal democrats encouraged millions of people to vote four years ago? Republicans got off their asses in record numbers and voted the douche bag back into office by a clear majority. You think Obama is still gonna win this? He may be super likable, smart and fully capable for the job, but American voters are the worst vetters when it comes to screening applicants for the job. I don’t want to drink a beer with a guy responsible for launching nukes, I want this guy sober and clear minded. But seeing as you are all determined to march happily into the arms of Armageddon, aloha and good riddance, America.

    Don’t pay attention to news or politics 364 days a year? – VOTE!

    Don’t know anything about politics but what actors and slate mailers tell you? – VOTE!

    Are you a felon, a fictitional character, deceased, or a family pet? – VOTE!

    Even if you’re not a citizen – VOTE! (they don’t check ID’s)

    Hollywood, ACORN*, and Obama thank you.

    *ACORN asks that you vote early so they can figure out how many more of their bogus ballots for Obama they should insert in battleground states before Nov. 4th.

    Anyone else fucking had it up to here with trying to watch a video only to get “We’re sorry this video is no longer available?!!!!”

    FUCK YouTube.

  13. rolacWAHHHH

    I wish the Canadian election was as widely advertised as the American election. Maybe if more than 59% of eligible Canadian voters would have actually fucking voted and we wouldn’t be stuck with another shitty Conservative government. 41% didn’t vote! Outrageous!

    It doesn’t matter who’s tell you to vote, it just makes sense for celebs to broadcast it on TV rather than on their facebook status. It’s important to reach out to the masses as best as you can on important, world changing subjects.

  14. Rant

    You think Dion, Layton, or that Yappy Poodle May was the answer? If it was not for Quebec backing the Bloc, Harper would have his majority.

  15. christina

    Can anyone tell me why Orlando Bloom is in this commercial? He isn’t even American!!

  16. Binky

    # 65…ummm…he doesn’t want his country invaded ? Or ‘shock and awed’…

    Just a thought…

  17. dsfsdf33

    great. now i ll have to jerk off in that tiny fuckin box. but its gotta be done, rite.

  18. fax

    @66 I must have missed the part where John McCain said that the U.S. was invading Great Britain. But yeah, go ahead and VOTE! because it sounds like you know what’s going on in the world.

  19. #68 – 100 Canadians dead in Afghanistan because of you Americans.
    #64 – If Harper was in power after 9/11 we’d be in Iraq. He’s a complete joke like Blair.
    - How many Brits have been killed or maimed in Iraq because of American elections # 68 ?
    - McCain singing ‘Bomb Bomb Bomb. Bomb Bomb Iran’ doesn’t give me much confidence in you GOP intellectuals….

  20. Celebs are the real superficial

    Let’s make a deal. You assholes stop making terrible entertainment and we’ll go vote since you’re sooooooooo damn eager to see us do that. Sound good? Or are you fucks going to just ignore us as usual until you have some agenda to push.

    And Justin Timberlake, what the hell are you trying to do with that self depreciating humor? Only people who are actually good can do that. you are from a boyband and it will always make you right up there with hanson. That’s all she wrote bitch.

  21. wowzers

    Never have so many dorks emanated so many rays of smug self-satisfaction…at least not since the last election.

    Obama has spent his life climbing the socioeconomic ladder, attending the right schools, and connecting with the “right” people. The White House is the next stop on his personal “Lifetime Goals I Want to Achieve.” His list of friends and social cohorts is a list – almost exclusively – of the wealthy, rich, and well-connected – it amazes me that some of the most disadvantaged people I know think he will understand their situation, let alone care enough to try to fix it. He will take America out of its leadership position – what little remains – and try to make it a “peer” of other nations, treating foreign relations like a popularity contest (and why not? it’s gotten him this far.) which seems risky to me, considering some nations who will only be happy if America is obliterated. (exhibit: 9/11 attacks). Keep in mind, Obama was voted most liberal member of the Senate in 2007 – beating out Ted Kennedy. And Hillary.

    John McCain, after surviving POW camps, is the one candidate who will take war seriously, who understands firsthand what it does to our soldiers and their families because he has lived it. I trust him to put the condition of our troops ahead of the finicky opinions of people overseas. McCain, I hope, understands that not everything in life is a popularity contest.

    Presidents don’t really make the laws, either, people. They do run the military. You want a desk jockey like Obama on that?

  22. Sammy Satire

    The other scary thing is 70% of the 18-25 demographic get their political news from John Stewart and Steve Colbert.

  23. Trish

    Someone shut these dumb ass hollywood people up! Obama is more Arab then black! So why do they keep saying “Our first black president” Come on people…….READ!!!!!!!

    # 34 you are an absolute disgusting piece of shit. Before McCain was running for president, he was a soldier (just like so many of the people many of us know). He was a POW for 5 + years and was tortured every day and he did it for our country. You can’t respect him as a politician, respect him as a soldier. If you still can’t do that, you should get your disgusting, liberal ass the hell out of this country. If you can’t show respect to the men and women who ensure our freedom and opportunity, you don’t deserve to be here.

    With that said, this is only the beginning. Nancy Pelosi and the rest of the Dems in Congress, are try to pass the “Fairness Doctrine” to ensure media outlets of fair and balanced coverage. Another words, they want to stifle the 1 news network and Elisabeth Hasselback of speaking, so we can hear their liberal bs for the rest of our lives.

    Lastly, I really don’t want these immoral, I’ve been to rehab 3 times, jail 5, have 4 kids with 3 different people and refuse to marry any of them celebs telling me who to vote for. I live in the real world, with my bills and barely anything income. I don’t need some assholes who make 1 billion + a year telling me to vote. They have no idea of the real world. We deserve a voice, not them. Go Screw youreselves.

    These celebrities need to shut their pie holes! Obama is a radical left winger who is going to raise our taxes. He has no expierence at all. Is this the best the Left wing party has to give! Help us all.

    #75 is so right on! I am voting for you!!!!

    @69 Congratulations for knowing that Canadians were in Afghanistan and that the British were in Iraq. That’s more than I expected. Oh, but minus points for insinuating that they were drafted into the U.S. Armed Forces and that still doesn’t explain where your “invasion of Britain” comment came from.

    P.S. not voting for McCain either or for an invasion of Iran. Just sick of the insipid followers of Obama who know nothing about him because he never left a paper trail and the media didn’t deem it important enough to check out. Instead we get Hollywood PSA’s that you lap right up.

    One of Obama’s mentors, Saul Alinsky, said this in his ‘Rules for Radicals’, “You must speak the language of the middle class…in order to destroy it.”

    Think about that the next time Obama talks about supporting the middle class.

  29. Bob

    Love that they threw in some non-Americans… who, I’m sure are frustrated to hell that although you supposedly have the ‘right’ to vote but still have to do some register thing? Seems anti-productive and antiquated by today’s technological standards. There should be no reason for it … in other FREE countries it works like this: you’re a citizen of voting age then your name is automatically in the system – you have the right to vote – vote – done.

  30. So # 71 – ” (exhibit 9/11 attacks) ” ???
    Could you please expwain to me ‘free fall collapse speed through undamaged steel structure’, the stand down of NORAD, molten metal in the ruins, that type of thing ???
    Then try and convince these architects and engineers with your theories.
    Let me know how it go.

    I’m not American but the reasons McCain voters in this board point out as relevant to them (and I’m amazed there are so many of those in a site like this) make me feel depressed about mankind…
    Please someone tell me #71 and #74 are not striking examples of what average Americans think about when electing a President.

    Ever the cowboy nation… “Yeehaw, America fuck yeah”

  32. # 78 Drafted into the US Forces ? WTF ? Ever heard of puppets and shills ?
    Death is Death – who needs an invasion ?
    But I agree – they’re both establishment candidates. Both parties are the same.

  33. Shep

    Just think, if you Americans didn’t fuck up your country so royally by voting in arguably the stupidest person on the face of the earth, we wouldn’t have to endure these annoying as fuck ads from rich as fuck celebrities.

    The fact that there’s actually people out there voting for a ticket where Palin may actually be retarded is mind boggling. I’m not saying Obama is perfect but jesus, at least he can do an interview without thinking at hte end of it “that’s a shame, he must have been dropped on his head repeatedly as a child”

    Like America, WAKE THE FUCK UP

    @79 I like that. FREE country and “automatically in the system” without a hint of irony.

    What a bunch of assholes! Nothing better than a Canadian (Ryan Reynolds) and a felon (Snoop Dog) telling me to vote. Nobama ’08

  36. fax

    @82 you went from “Orlando Bloom is in the video because he doesn’t want his country invaded by the United States” to “puppets and shills”. Way to back down. Neither candidate is going to change that. I’m no fan of McCain, but if you want the United States to eventually resemble a Soviet block country, vote for Obama and a Democratic super-majority in Congress. We’ll all be looking back on the “poverty and despair” of 2008 with fondness compared to that bleak future.

  37. yourfacehere

    3 Quick question for Americans…
    1. Ryan Renolds is from Canada – should he be talking about American elections?
    2. Why the hell does your election take so long??? In Canada, elections are talked about for approx. 4 months, and the whole process takes about 8 hours on election day…

    Just askin’

  38. Ryan Reynolds has only one use

    Number 71 said it best and 74 nailed down the anger.

    And number 81, yes all American conservatives are just like the ones you see in the Superficial. Because that is where we go to get all of our news. I hope this does not make you feel saddy-pooh again.

    While it’s cute that you think you know something about the U.S. and you argue that we must vote for Obama because your country is dependent on us, doesn’t that tell you something about your own government? Take some personal responsibility asshole. If anything bad happens it’s always blame America. Blame Canada!

    Beyond the fact that McCain isn’t Bush, there are principles those on the right are not willing to change because they have moral conviction.

    Most don’t want partial birth abortion. Do you know what that actually is? It’s actually real birth, and then they kill it/fetus/LIVE BABY. Look it up. Double speak. Most don’t think of a potential baby as a “punishment” as Mr. Wonderful said.

    We also don’t want socialism. That’s why they’re equally pissed off at Bush, who doesn’t represent conservative ideals and spends money like it’s his. So quit with the Bush crap. Bush let everybody down. All say this though, he has bigger balls than Gore or Kerry have and those pussies would have us bombed for fear of hurting the feelings of the international community.

    They also don’t want a man who associates with terrorists and all the indoctrinated morons of supposed “higher education.”

    First Obama said he wouldn’t tax anyone under 300k or so, then it was 250k, then 150k according to Biden the other day, and now according to Obama’s pathetic infomercial it’s 200k. This motherfucker lies, pulls the race card every chance he gets, and cheats like his life depends on it and then has the audacity to charge other side with the same thing. It’s called projecting. It’s also called manipulation. What the hell does change mean? What politician doesn’t seek “change?” Who has a platform of I want everything to be exactly the same and totally fucked up as is? Nobody.

    The other countries will never understand the U.S. citizens who are against Obama and his cult. Socialism isn’t a bad word anymore, so you can’t reason with these people. They embrace socialism. They’ll tell you how great their health care is, how wonderful things are without handguns, how it’s all for the greater good. Hitler took away guns from everybody too, and he had all kinds of thoughts about the common good. He preached change too. That was a total success eh? What other socialist experiments can you point to with this much success?

    It’s a fight for maintaining a way of life people. Capitalism has it’s downs but it is far better than socialism.

    I’m done.

    Flame away.

    Ok seriously how fucking Leftist is Hollywood.
    It’s always the scientologists, mega super rich (where raising taxes on them wouldn’t matter), people who are KNOWN to have absolutely no morals (cause they get divorced constantly and do drugs and cheat) and FAGGOTS who want Obama to become president.

    Oh and lets not forget the Blacks. WTF they are the most frikkin racist people ever. Can you imagine voting for the President of America, the most powerful nation in the world based on something moronic like skin color?

    I mean seriously, the man claims to be Christian, though he clearly favors Palestinians who want to take over Israel (terrorists), PARTIAL BIRTH ABORTION, a minister who was anti-America and anti white!

    HELLO PEOPLE open your fucking eyes. Its as if white people in this nation have been brainwashed into thinking they are bad and that they somehow owe black people something.

    As for cutting taxes for the rich, if you lower the taxes on everyone, clearing rich people would be saving more percentage wise because they are paying more out in taxes percentage wise…RETARDS!

    Also, I don’t want my taxes to go to paying for more poor, and illegal people’s health insurance. I have my own medical bills. Most people can afford insurance or get Medicare somehow. If you’re illegal, oh fucking well, maybe if you paid some taxes I’d feel bad for you. If you’re too dumb to get some kind of certification or education to get a job so you can have benefits well then suck it, don’t go looking for handouts!

    Mexicans, stop sending our country’s money to your dumb ass relatives in other countries YOUR FUCKING UP OUR ECONOMY!

    Voting just to get some Black guy in Office is the most ignorant selfish thing you can do. Oh and only reading extremely leftist news columns is moronic too.

    Gays Marrying is a disgusting abomination!

    Obama is going to ruin this country. At first as soon as he is elected it is going to seem like he’s fixing things but that won’t be because of him, it will just be the natural flux of things. People are so stupid its painful, just educate yourselves and stop feeling bad for every lazy jerk off.

  40. shanipie

    Oh and BY THE WAY

    After 911 everyone was dying to pin GWB of associating with Terrorists, couldn’t really prove a damn thing.

    Holy shit if bush had said and done and been associated with half the shit that Obama has he’d be impeached and probably investigated heavily for treason.

    Also if any of your War hating losers would actually read some fucking text about it you’d know that 70% of soldiers are voting McCain, yeah really seams as though they hate what they’ve been doing.

    Oh yeah cutting bac on military will help this country, right.

    Our troops haven’t acheived their goals yet, which is helping the shitty less fortunate countries, isn’t that what all you democrats want anyways? Pulling them our now would mean the ones who died and missed time with their loved ones did it for NOTHING. All their efforts will be lost.

    —–
    1. Anyone can have an opinion even if they, legally, can’t vote. (Or, maybe he can. Maybe he’s now a citizen? Although, that seems unlikely.)

    2. Many Americans ponder that very question… Also, if you can’t tell by the dumbass who’s in office, Americans don’t like things that make sense. (Sometimes I wonder if we exist just to piss off the rest of the world.)

    And, btw, anyone here who really thinks Obama is a socialist needs to pick up a real (not FOX News approved) political science book. Or, hell, read some of Marx’s work. Obama may be leaning (very slightly) to some social democratic ideas (i.e., systems like France, Sweden, which are NOT socialist countries) but he’s a far cry from a Marxist.
