A Clarification On My I Fucking Hate Celebrites Post

Here, another political video done by some celebrities:

Ron Howard's Call To Action


You see, the video above works. Because it's not someone attempting to direct your will one way or the other, solely based on some arbitrary status given to them by the popular culture.

They're actually using their talents (writing/acting/directing) to attempt to create something of worth within their medium, in order to influence people. They are trying.

I guess what enraged me so much in my previous post was the stink of entitlement that wafted off of every actor in the video.

It made me recall the line Ed Begley, Jr. gave (playing himself) on the Simpsons, where he drove a car powered by his "own sense of self-satisfaction".

So, not all celebrities are bad, self-satisfied. Not all of them are royalty. To clarify -- fuck some celebrities, but not others.

Thank you for your time!

Someone must have uploaded the video to YouTube in VIOLATION of THE LAW.
