'Comedy Central' Video Mocks Celebrities Telling You to Vote
The video below is a brutal mockery of sanctimonious celebrities who think they're better than you. Spoiler alert: Comedy Central's video is also a snarky ride to the Rock the Vote website. But it's also a rare instance of a network being funny, outside of South Park (see South Park Deliciously Trolls Overly-Sensitive Leftists with ‘PC Babies’ and FLASHBACK: When Reality Crashed Your Safe Space on “South Park”). Enjoy!
“Many normal Americans like us don’t know what we should do until celebrities tell us what to do… Some people are calling this the most important election of our lives, but they aren’t famous.”
To answer the question, if you need celebrities to tell you to vote, no. You shouldn't vote.
But the notion you need celebrities to remind you there's an election, and you should vote, that's what's so condescending to the point of madness. I need Jennifer Aniston to show me all the haircuts I could never pull off. I need Tom Holland to show me how America has to keep importing superheroes from the Olde Country. I need Jennifer Garner to remind me chickens are acceptable pets in a society which prefers cats and dogs. I need Samuel L. Jackson to show me he is more than just Mr. Glass or Patches from the Avenger's movies of which they are far too many.
But I don't need a celebrity, who spends most of their days pretending to be someone else, reminding me to vote. Maybe this is bragging, but I can vote like I do up my shoes: all by myself. Thanks mommy and daddy Hollywood.
