James Franco and Chris Pine Get Political in Two New Ads
If, despite all the noise surround this campaign year, you still haven’t gotten inspired to step into the voting booth, Chris Pine and James Franco would like to bend your ear. Both celebs have released new clips today (Nov. 1, 2016) offering their own brands of humor and a message for Americans.
Pine’s clip arrives from director Joss Whedon’s non-profit Save The Day. The short clip casts the Star Trek Beyond star as a congressman… who also happens to be your office coworker. The leading man terrifyingly recreates some of the bad behavior that’s been seen from elected officials in the past, including sexual harassment, ignoring glaring safety issues and even shutting everything down if they don’t get their way. It’s clever and it’s powerful.
As for Franco, he stars in another video that gives a nod to Dos Equis’ “Most Interesting Man in the World” campaign, singing the (totally ridiculous) praises of Hillary Clinton. Some of the compliments include Clinton’s laugh being in the Smithsonian and Yoda being her apprentice. At the end of the clip, a just-showered Franco towels off while proclaiming the Democratic presidential candidate to be “The Most Interesting Woman in the World.”
Election day is Nov. 8, 2016. You’ve got just one week to cast your ballot!
