“Take a video of yourself talking about why you love Bernie Sanders, send it to us, and then we’ll have an intern spend hours piecing it together in Final Cut.” These were the directions (probably) sent to large group of celebrities that includes Kristen Wiig, Miley Cyrus, Amanda Palmer, Rosario Dawson, Susan Sarandon, Mark Ruffalo, Michael Stipe, Harry Belafonte (who endorsed Bernie earlier), Kristen Wiig’s dog, and many others who appear in a new ad in support of Bernie, which was released late last week.
Michael Stipe is really pulling double duty when it comes to Bernie: yesterday, he appeared in Coney Island to introduce Sanders at one of his NYC rallies. Where does he get all of his energy? Could it be his magnificent beard?
