With the Presidential Election just one day away, celebrities are doing their part to make sure we vote... by making us laugh! Over the weekend, Chris Rock, Kathy Griffin, Cher and Will Ferrell all released very funny videos with a serious message, urging Americans to support their candidate of choice: Barack Obama. Watch them all below!
Chris Rock's video, which premiered Friday night on Jimmy Kimmel Live, attempts to counteract Mitt Romney's edge among white voters by convincing them that Obama is even whiter than Romney. One of his examples: "After college, Barry went into black neighborhoods in Chicago to try and organize people. How white is that? Black people don't go into black communities. We don't have to! We're already there!"
Cher teamed up with her friend-slash-superfan Kathy Griffin to criticize the policies of Romney and running-mate Paul Ryan. "Romney and his buddies are trying to 'turn back time' on women’s rights," says Griffin, referencing Cher's 1989 hit while urging swing-state voters to support Obama. "There's a lot at stake in this election," Cher agrees, "for women and for people who like women and respect them."(And of course, Griffin adds, "I'm looking at you, gays!")
Finally, Will Ferrell got into the action by pledging to personally "do anything" to get viewers to vote. "You need a guy to move a couch? Done," he promises, also offering to make a home cooked meal, do a dance, draw your next tattoo, and "even punch myself in the face. Whatever it takes."
Though they didn't make a fancy video of their own, Twilight stars Ashley Greene and Nikki Reed also urged young people to vote during a recent conversation with MTV News. "If you ever, ever, ever want to complain about what's going on in the U.S., you should vote because then you have a right to," says Green. "Educate yourself too...Know what you're voting for, and stand by that," adds Reed.
