Hollywood funny-man Will Ferrell, who starred in memorable flicks like Anchorman and Old School, has recently appeared in a campaign ad for President Obama telling Americans he’d do “anything” to get them to vote.
Those who have seen Anchorman will recognize the style of the video– Ferrell’s exaggerated self-confidence mixed with the absurdity of his statements resembles his character Ron Burgundy.
“I’m not kidding,” Ferrell remarked before proceeding to list all the things he’d be willing to do.
“Hungry? How about a home cooked meal– I hope you like angel hair pasta. You need a guy to help you move a couch? Done. I’ve even got my own van. If you agree to vote in this year’s election, I will personally give you a tattoo– fair warning, I do not know how to draw. I’ll do a dance, just for you.”
After an awkward interlude of Ferrell dancing, the actor continues:
“If you vote I’ll eat anything you tell me to. Garbage, hair, human toenails, underpants, whatever. I’ll do it. I’m serious, I’ll do anything to get you to vote. I’ll punch myself in the face, I don’t care. Whatever it takes. Just go to the polls on November 6, and vote. Vote Obama.”
Ferrell concludes the ad by catching a football, saying “it’s a slam dunk.”
