Sean Penn and Kid Rock are “Americans” in hilarious PSA
Two celebrities with different political viewpoints come together in this patriotic, awfulsome public service announcement.
In YouTube Right Now, the Daily Dot looks at videos that catch our eyes, push our buttons, and move our dials—and that you’ve just got to watch. Right now!
Despite their political affiliations, Sean Penn and Kid Rock are both Americans.
That’s the takeaway from a new 11-minute public service announcement (PSA) film written and directed by Jameson Stafford.
The PSA, entitled “Americans,” starts off with the actor and the rock musician (who also executive produced the whole thing) running into each other at some swank bar. Penn and Kid Rock lob tired barbs at each other, to the point where it almost looks like they might exchange fisticuffs.
Thankfully, a news report highlighting the soldier death count in Afghanistan airs on the television screen. It’s at this point where the two realize that their patriotism, regardless of how it manifests itself, is a thing of unity. What follows is a hilariously bad 4-minute montage of Penn and Kid Rock doings things the other wouldn’t do—together.
“The goal of the film is to tear down the one-dimensional political stereotypes portrayed by the media by confronting them head on,” reads the description attached to the video, which was uploaded on Kid Rock’s own channel.
“It reminds us that what really matters is that we’re all Americans, with diverse thoughts, opinions and stances on the issues.”
One thing’s for sure: whether you’re a Democrat or a Republican, the awfulsome nature of this short film will make you laugh hysterically. If it doesn’t, the terrorists have won.
