Oh, the wit! Hoping to harness the awe-inspiring power of Gossip Girl, MoveOn.org today released this ad featuring Penn Badgley and Blake Lively, the telegenic stars of GG.
In the ad, the actors – and some other, nameless young folk – flip the script a bit and urge their parents to vote
for against John McCain. “I found this in your room,” says Bagdley, while another mop top admonishes, “Just because other people your age are doing it, doesn’t make it cool.” Wait, wait – isn’t that exactly what MoveOn’s doing with this ad? Oh well.
Lively, meanwhile, maintains a straight-face while delivering this knee-slapper, “If you’re ever out somewhere and you’re considering voting McCain, just call me, no questions asked.” We’d laugh if that line weren’t so predictable. Still, good hustle!
