How desperate is Will Ferrell for you to vote? With days and hours to go in the presidential campaign, the self-described "comedian, actor, founder of Facebook" has released a public appeal to get you to vote. And by 'you' he probably means all those twenty-somethings who showed up at the polls in 2008 and not so much in 2010.
In a new video Ferrell, dressed in velvet smoking jacket finery, makes a series of tantalizing offers to get you to vote: "If you agree to vote in this year's election, I will personally give you a tattoo," he offers. "Fair warning, I do not know how to draw." He offers to move your couch. Make you dinner. "I'll do a dance just for you," he said.
And this: "If you vote, I'll eat anything you tell me to – garbage. Hair. Human toenails. Underpants…. Just go to the polls."
He saves the big reveal for the end: "Vote Obama," he deadpans.
