Ashton Kutcher has taken a break from producing ridiculous reality shows to make a politically-inspired PSA that celebrates Barack Obama coming into office. The video stars celebrities like Cameron Diaz, Courtney Cox and David Arquette, and Eva Longoria all promising to do their part in making our country a better place.
And that means more than just showing up to the big inaugural parties tonight! Demi Moore’s promise is to simply “smile more,” while Joel Madden pledges to be a great father.
Ashton said about his new project, "We are honored to be working with MySpace to rally the entertainment industry to answer President-elect Barack Obama’s call to service. 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.”
CEO of Myspace Chris DeWolfe says, "Ashton and Demi's commitment is truly inspiring as are the moving pledges that cultural icons and everyday Americans will deliver to support President Obama. MySpace has always offered a platform for people looking to make a positive difference in the world, and we're thrilled to partner with Katalyst on this landmark initiative."
Myspace has come quite a long way from just being a social networking site! It’s great to see the commitment some of the stars have for Obama, and we hope they’ll keep their promises! Check out the video to see more statements from celebrities about how they intend to change things in our country and around the world.
