Unlike her first "Declare Yourself" PSA, she is seen the new ad wearing no make up, letting her hair sloppy, and having her mouth covered with Hannibal Lecter-type mask.
An active campaigner for the upcoming U.S. presidential election, Jessica Alba has a sequel for her previous "Declare Yourself" public service announcement (PSA), posing in Hannibal Lecter-type mask for her second ad. Having her mouth tightly closed behind metal nails, she is pictured wearing no make-up and having tears running down her cheeks. Adding a messy look into her face, Alba lets her hair sloppy.
The PSA, shot by celebrity photographer Mark Liddell, has a tagline that read, "Only you can silence yourself. Make them hear you. Register to vote now." The ad, which also attaches on it Declare Yourself's official web address, is meant to encourage young people to register and vote.
Explaining on her involvement in the political cause, Alba was previously quoted as saying, "If you don't register and vote and make a difference, and hopefully change the bad things that are happening in our country, you are essentially just binding and muzzling yourself."
Alba, in fact, isn't the only celebrity who is encouraging Americans to vote. There are also the likes of Leonardo DiCaprio, Halle Berry, Sarah Silverman, and Ellen DeGeneres just to name a few, all of whom are among the many other Hollywood notable figures who have starred in "5 Friends" PSA.
