Bill Hader, Nicole Byer target ‘the youth’ with voting PSA

Posted on

With the election only a few weeks away, Joss Whedon has been cranking out PSA after PSA, encouraging young voters to get to the polls on Nov. 8. So far, he’s promised to get Mark Ruffalo to do a nude scene, asked Keegan-Michael Key to give a doomsday weather forecast, and cast Anders Holm and Minka Kelly as anti-voter fraud agents. And with his latest video, Whedon is addressing millennial voters directly in a PSA that’s totally fleek. (Or not.)

Whedon’s newest clip recruits Bill Hader and Nicole Byer to encourage young people to vote — by appealing to all their favorite things: Hamilton references, Beyonce’s Lemonade, and “The Drake.”

“Like most millennials, I am lazy and self-involved,” Byer explains, while snapping a selfie. “But this Nov. 8, I’ll be thinking of more important things than Instagram likes and the Pokemons. I’ll be voting.”

The Hader and Byer video is the latest release from Whedon’s Save the Day super PAC, which is devoted to mobilizing young voters and “fighting the apathy, cynicism, and honest confusion that keeps citizens from using their vote.”
