Will Ferrell, king of cool. The veteran comedian boasted about his status as a hip millennial in a hilarious campaign video for Hillary Clinton that the Democratic presidential nominee shared via Twitter on Friday, November 4.
“I’m Will Ferrell — actor, comedian and typical run-of-the-mill millennial,” the Saturday Night Live alum, 49, says at the beginning of the clip while surrounded by teens and twentysomethings. “Looks like you just caught me hanging out with my squad.”
“I just wanted to talk to you directly, one vibrant youth to another,” Ferrell continues as he tries to punch a phone number into a flip phone. “So let’s all put down our Snapchat, Tinder, Instagram and other assorted app-based technologies for a minute so we can keep it 100.”
The comedian then encourages his fellow millennials to get out and vote on Tuesday, November 8, warning that because whether or not we vote goes on public record, nonvoters will be outcast for being lame.
“If you don’t vote, everyone might find out that you’re the opposite of on fleek,” he says. “Or that you’re basic. Or even worse. That you’ve got no chill. All of this on top of what will be a serious case of FOMO.”
The video is full of emojis, awkward facial expressions and trendy terms, but Ferrell’s message is clear: vote.
The funnyman isn’t the only celebrity campaigning hard for Clinton in the last few days until Election Day; on Friday night, Jay Z and Beyoncé performed for a Get Out the Vote concert in Cleveland and on Thursday, Lena Dunham dropped a parody video of herself as wannabe rapper MC Pantsuit.
