The likes of Leonardo DiCaprio, Halle Berry, Sarah Silverman, and Ellen DeGeneres are among the many celebs who star in "5 Friends" PSA encouraging people to start registering to be able to vote.
The U.S. presidential election is less than five weeks away and Hollywood celebs have been very vocal encouraging Americans to start registering in order to be able to vote, starring in a public service announcement (PSA) video, called "5 Friends." Among them who are taking part in the cause include Halle Berry, Leonardo DiCaprio, Sarah Silverman, Ellen DeGeneres, Jennifer Aniston, Jamie Foxx, Ashton Kutcher, will.i.am and many more.
In the more-than-four minutes video the celebrities try to emphasize the importance of voting. They can be seen in the footage urging people repeatedly to register and vote and pursue their five friends or more to get involved in the highly anticipated presidential election.
Urging people, both registered and unregistered, to spread the message of the upcoming voter-registration deadline October 4, the stars mention some crucial issues that might get affected by voting, including women's rights, civil rights, the economy, and global warming just to name a few. Also featuring a reminder that said, "Register to vote or you have no choice," the clip even lists a web address at which viewers can register.
Leo, who lends a helping hand to produce the PSA, was quoted as saying "I mean, seriously, .. after this whole video - if you're not gonna vote, I don't even know what to say. ... You know you have to vote." Below is the video of "5 Friends" PSA.
