Everyone, regardless of fame or fortune, has a cause that they deeply care about, whether it's breast cancer awareness, environmental activism, or LGBT rights advocacy. But when tens (tens!) of celebs join together to participate in a single music video, there's only one thing it can mean: "it's really fucking important," as The Mindy Project's Adam Pally sings in the chorus of Funny Or Die's expletive-laden effort to get out the vote.
The song, co-written by Crazy Ex-Girlfriend star Rachel Bloom and produced by Moby, features a string of celebrities, including Elizabeth Banks, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Mayim Bialik, Jane Lynch, and Amber Rose, imploring young Americans to cast their ballots come Election Day.
"I can't believe I've had to stoop so low," Bloom sings, "but an orange talking STD has driven me to this recording studio."
Bloom, Moby, and company might just have this year's funniest take on a star-studded get-out-the-vote PSA. They join a long line of people speaking out against divisive rhetoric, including the cast of The Avengers, Emma Watson, and Beyoncé.
"The right to use our voice at the polling stations this Election Day is not a privilege that should be taken lightly," the Grammy Award-winning singer wrote this week on Instagram. "Throughout history, from the women's suffrage movement to the Civil Rights Movement, this is a right that we had to fight to obtain. It was our power that put the first Black president into the White House, and it was our influence that changed the course of history."
So vote. Vote to exercise your constitutional rights, vote to change history, and vote to forestall your favorite celebs from losing any more Saturdays to singing about "garbage fires."
Even if the end product is pretty freaking hilarious.
