Will Ferrell

Will Ferrell scored big laughs and moderate box office success this summer with his political comedy The Campaign, following years imitating President George W. Bush on SNL and on Broadway. The funnyman is now getting very very serious and urges people to go and vote this Tuesday. Ferrell says he will do anything people ask him to do in order to motivate people to vote, and the suggestions from the actor get increasingly ridiculous. At the end of the video, Ferrell urges a vote for President Obama.

  1. Hmmm

    I’d urge Ferrell to explain his support for Obama. He uses his fame to get someone elected, but does he want people to vote for someone just because funnyman Will said so?

    Well, first of all this video is really more about comedy and a general get out the vote message than a detailed endorsement of the President.

    If you’re looking for reasons to vote for Obama, check the essay from Ferrell’s buddy and Anchorman director Adam McKay:

    Honestly, I was watching this video as a message for people to get out and vote without any knowledge it was pro-Obama. For some reason, Will’s final comment to vote for Obama struck me as hilarious because the rest of the video was filled with non-sequiturs!
