YUCK! And who the hell is that Ringo Starr/Elvis Costello looking dude playing guitar? Forest Whitaker does another piece of over-acting.

Perez Hilton makes a cameo at the end. Classy.

Before this vid, I could see and hear. By the end of this I couldnt help but squirt a bottle of hand sanitizer in both my eyes and ears. It hurts, but that could just be the residual effects of this vid in my brain. Can't tell yet.

Yikes! That was the most American thing I have EVER seen. You hate yourselves for loving it, don't you?

This is despite the presence of Pam Anderson, and Barry Manilow's awesome transformation into KD Lang.

It's not for you guys. It's for people who actually vote.

True, @9.

easy-listen the vote!

@9-no it's for people who think that all those people in the vid are in the "cool subset". They are NOT.

um, last time i checked, macy gray and josh stone were from england, right? they can't vote here, but i'm sure glad they came all the way out to show their support.


and yeah, macy gray blew up like a balloon!

Macy Gray was born in Ohio. Finding out things like that is kinda why they invented google. Joss Stone is a Brit, though.

I bet this video does wonders with the VH1 crowd. ugh.
