SMU Students Analyze the 2012 Presidential Election

Will Ferrell Will Do Whatever It Takes

The Obama campaign has released another video with big-name celebrity endorsement: Will Ferrell.

The ad comes across as simply another “get out the vote” video, but at the end Ferrell actually supports Barack Obama.

The video is typical Ferrell, spouting ridiculous quips like “If you agree to vote in this year’s election, I will personally give you a tattoo. Fair warning, I do not know how to draw.”

Effective? Maybe. Celebrity endorsements are really nothing but fluff in presidential elections, but Ferrell’s movies elicit cult-like followings who may be persuaded to get to the ballot box by this video.
