Oh, you’re hungover from thirsty Thursday? Amy Schumer doesn’t care. You’re going to vote.

The comedian showed up to the dorms at the University of Nevada and not only knocked on their doors to round potential voters up, she escorted them to the polls to make sure they did it.

In a video posted on Instagram, Schumer walks down a hallway that looks like it smells like sticky beer and bangs on doors with no luck. Not really a surprise for one of the top ranking party schools in the country.

And while we can’t be certain what time the video was taken, the fact that the one person who answered her door is in pajamas makes us think…maybe sometime around noon?

Regret, and some confusion, immediately sets in on the student’s face. Schumer introduces herself, but to be honest, we’re not entirely convinced the student knew who she was. But she politely went along with the game.

When asked if she voted yet, the student honestly replied, “No.” Schumer told her to get ready and she’d escort her to the polls.

It seems really rude to assume that this girl wouldn’t have happily worn her maybe-pajamas-maybe-athleisure to vote. But I digress.

Next thing you know, it appears they’ve recruited a few more to join the pack, and the whole crew is making their way to vote. She tells the student to get in line and she obliges. Why is she doing everything Schumer tells her to? Why is this girl so nice?

Schumer then leaves the college student with a hug and the words of encouragement: “You’ll never forget the first time you vote.”

The actress isn’t the only a-lister using her fame to bring voters to the polls. Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt have joined the fight as well. 

Taylor Swift has been blowing up Instagram as the midterms approach, despite avoiding politics in the past. She’s  even been sharing photos of her followers who voted on her Instagram story.

And Blake Lively  shared a picture with her husband, Ryan Reynolds, and their absentee ballots. Oh, side note: it was his birthday, too.
