Okay, I seriously couldn't help myself. There's just too much journal searching taking place that I had to take a break.
I found this VERY entertaining for more reasons than one.
Firstly, this thing about celebrities endorsing objects or ideas is fascinating to me. Yea okay, what's the point of star power, if you can't use it to inspire people. Everyone looks to celebrities as role models and so companies or organisations take advantage of that by using celebrities to promote their stuff. And the reason people buy all that crap is so that they're just this little bit closer to being just like their hero and thinking that they share the same ideals brings them a sense of coolness.
However, I do admire people like Leo DiCaprio and Matt Damon who squeeze all their star power into doing what THEY believe in. It's more of what they do sometimes that make people want to emulate them. Not what they say in a four minute PSA. And if people can't find inspiration in their backyards, then I suppose flashy gossip mags should be alright. The end result is what counts right? Regardless whether people think the reason they're doing something is because of what they themselves believe in, or because it's the 'in' thing.
Anyway, the other main reason this PSA is entertaining is because it's funny! Borat has the stupidest lines, Ryan Reynolds says, "There's more Baldwin brothers than that.", JT states, "I can do anything, I was in a boyband okay.", Harrison Ford gets all shaken up with passion (look at his hands man) and all the celebs get majorly confused. And of course there's Shia. :) Oh and Scarlett is Gorjeeeesssss....
A dash of Disney, a sprinkle of pop punk, lashings of sweet treats, a pinch of superheroes, bundles of laughter and a tinge of crankyness.
All wrapped up in a pretty package that resembles the Cookie Monster.
