Celebrities including Chris Rock, Amy Schumer and Mark Ruffalo are appearing naked in new ads that bring attention to laws that require voters in 16 states, including Pennsylvania, to insert their mail-in ballot into two separate envelopes in order to be counted.
While the celebrities are in the nude, viewers only see the men from mid-chest and up and the women do not have their breasts exposed.
RepresentUs, the creator of the ad, says, “the rule risks the rejection of hundreds of thousands of mail-in votes, which could significantly impact US election results.”
Other celebrities in the video include Tiffany Haddish, Chelsea Handler, Naomi Campbell, Sarah Silverman and her father Donald, Josh Gad, and Ryan Michelle Bathe and a fully dressed Sacha Baron Cohen as Borat.
They instruct voters on how to properly vote by mail.
“Naked ballots are the new hanging chads,” said RepresentUs co-founder and CEO Josh Silver in a news release.
“The fact is that if you use the wrong pen color or don’t assemble your mail-in ballot correctly, your vote may not count. This is not a partisan issue; it affects all people planning to vote by mail.
We’re grateful to this committed and talented group for making an eye-catching video so that everyone understands what they need to do to ensure their vote is counted.”
The video ad is below. The ad does contain a curse word.
