Even more celebrities are going on-camera to get out the vote.
While Joss Whedon’s earlier anti-Trump entry for the Save the Day campaign -- featuring Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson and others -- enjoyed poking fun at overly serious celebrity PSAs while still encouraging viewers to participate in the election, the newly launched #VoteYourFuture video seems to be fully embracing its earnestness.
The video features nearly 100 famous faces, including celebrities like Leonardo DiCaprio, Julia Roberts, Samuel L. Jackson, Zendaya, Martin Sheen, Kendall Jenner and Eva Longoria along with social media influencers like Hannah Hart and Anna Akana.
“What do you care about?” the participants ask as the video, produced by Anonymous Content, gets going. The various celebrities -- directed by the likes of Whedon, David O. Russell, Alejandro Iñarritu and Tom McCarthy -- make impassioned pleas for viewers to take part on election day by highlighting issues that are important to them.
The #VoteYourFuture campaign will continue to roll out with individual videos from different celebrities going into detail about what they care about most and the campaign’s YouTube channel has already posted 86 of them. The launch video offers samples of the testimonials from Moby, Donald Faison and a tearful Wilmer Valderrama.
“One issue that I care about very deeply is gun control,” Moby said. “I sat down with the parents of the children who were killed in Newtown and I saw a level of grief and emptiness and despair that I couldn’t have even imagined before.”
