A number of notable Hollywood celebrities speak out their pledges to the U.S. president-elect Barack Obama in a video, which is made by MySpace in partnership with Ashton Kutcher's Katalyst Media. "We are honored to be working with MySpace to rally the entertainment industry to answer President-elect Barack Obama's call to service," Ashton explains in a statement. "The Presidential Pledge is a platform for people across the nation and throughout the world to make a first-person commitment of service to our new president, articulating a specific intent or action to become an agent of positive change."

Courteney Cox, David Arquette, Nicole Richie, Kevin Connolly, Jason Bateman, Dakota Fanning and Molly Sims are among the stars featured in the video. Each of them has different pledges from one another, as for Courteney and David, the pair pledges to help supporting the hungers by feeding them and helping the local food bank. Dakota, meanwhile, pledges to never stop "learning and growing each day and every day."

"To be a great mother," new mother Ashlee Simpson says of her pledge. "I pledge to volunteer more of my time to help children battling serious illnesses," movie beauty Eva Mendes commits. "To plant 500 trees this year to help our planet," Eva Longoria adds. Ashton himself and his actress wife Demi Moore also make their own pledges.

I pledge to serve no man. I pledge to fight this Nazi reminiscent rhetoric and work to keep my children away from these blind followers.

I gave all of my Red Hot Chili Peppers CDs to a record store over this video. It's odd, none of these people are very talented.

okay, service is all fine and good, nothing against THAT certainly...but what's this "I pledge to be a servant to our president," "I pledge to serve Barack Obama" business? It's highly disturbing at best, and downright destructive and reminiscent of Nazi Germany at worst.

I pledge to never make pledges about things I will never do, or follow a complete stranger based on his promises for change.

A list celebrities? Rumor and Scout Willis, Ashlee Simpson? Michael Strahan and Wycleff? That was hardly A-list. Quite pathetic and unnerving the whole cult of Obama. I am frightened!
