Watch: Will Ferrell will do anything to get you to vote
After starring in the political comedy "The Campaign" this summer, actor Will Ferrell is doing some campaigning in real life, bringing humor to the rapidly approaching election day.
In a YouTube clip, Ferrell promises that he'll "do anything" to get Americans to vote on November 6, including cooking a pasta dinner, eating garbage and/or underpants, or punching himself in the face. (He did say anything, and according to President Obama's Twitter account, "Will Ferrell’s not kidding.")
If you vote tomorrow, he'll even give you a tattoo - presumably one that would emulate an "I Voted!" sticker - although "fair warning: I do not know how to draw," Ferrell quipped.
While it appears that the actor/comedian is encouraging voting in general, he does sneak in support of President Obama. "Vote Obama," Ferrell says as he catches a football. "It's a slam dunk."
We'll admit that after seeing "just a taste" of Ferrell's dance moves, we're dying to get a peek at the "full buffet." What do you think of the clip?

Thank you a bunch for sharing this with all people you actually recognise what you are speaking about! Bookmarked. Please additionally seek advice from my web site =). We can have a link exchange agreement between us
So do the 99% ever question why all these millionaires support Obama?
I thought the rich supported Republicans, but it sure seems a lot of rich people love Obama too, things that should make you go hmmmmm?
Id love it if obama and romney would get into the cage and try and tap the other putz out! at least then we would know whose tough enuff to be prez! oh and will stfu u are a putzinheimer to z stars!
I cannot and will not votefor mr.Hussein the muslim!!!....he's doing what his quar'an tells him to do take over from within and do away with the infidels....a very dangerous man is in office and for our safety he must go!!!...
Seriously?? Providing health care for all. I'd think that'd be the anti-terrorist thing to do – last thing a suicide bomber wants is unrestricted health care. Imagine all that work just to be saved by Obamacare! I forgot, the less dangerous Bush invaded another country to avenge his father. That's better...
Please tell me that you are kidding Name*steve. That is one of the most ignorant comments to ever spring from the mouth of someone who claims to care about America. That was not only racist but ignorant and inflammatory. You have the right to free speech, but we might consider repealing that amendment just for you. Whether or not anyone agrees with Obama's position, it is both dangerous and exclusionary to falsely label someone and treat alternative religious choices as inferior. I along with the majority of Americans would appreciate if you never posted anything ignorance and nearsighted like this post again.
Healthcare for all, to be paid for by the middle class. Socialism at it's best. Now back to America.
Why do people still believe their vote counts for something? Ever heard of the electoral college? Get a clue.
Todd needs a clue. Most states have a “winner-take-all” system that awards all electors to the winning presidential candidate. However, Maine and Nebraska each have a variation of “proportional representation.”
Meaning only 2 states follow the old process whereas other states electoral votes are based on the popular vote of the people in the state. Feel free to 'get a clue' and really learn how the Electoral College works for yourself and don't listen to Todd.
Will Ferrell Boeing funny dropped like our economy. I'll vote all right Will. I'll vote. And you can tattoo your own a$$
Vote! Vote! Vote! Your choice. Obama or the other guy.
A lot of people DO want you to punch yourself in the face. Please don't stop! It would be the only thing WF had ever done that would make me laugh. He is the least funny man in movies and on tv out there today.

Shut-up and eat more chickhen.. Roll tide..!
It's amazing Obama relies on rap thugs and degenerate comedians to endorse his message. Wait, my bad. That wasn't fair. I forgot Castro, Chavez and Putin!
It's so much easier to spray water into a ditch,form a mud puddle and wait for Romney supporters to appear with there 4 wheel drive trucks,rebel flags and white sheets over there heads.Oops did I forget the Kid Rock music?
Race card all you got?
What a sorry piece of shi&
Vote an fire Obama he sucks ! ! !
Ricky Bobby for President!!!
HEY WILL- SHUT THE *UCK UP AND LET PEOPLE MAKE UP THEIR OWN MINDS. HOPEFULLY NOT ALL DEMOCRATS ARE STUPID AND THEY CAN MAKE THIS DECISION ON THEIR OWN AND NOT HAVE TO RELY ON *DIOTS LIKE YOU. WE ALL KNOW HOW CELEBRITIES LOVE TO INFLUENCE PEOPLE AND HEAR THEMSELVES TALK.
Dear Baby Jesus please help Stacia from shouting loudly by using big letters to spell out her various statements and inflamed language towards people on the internet.-Amen?
Wow, butthurt much?
Ummm does anyone in this country realize that your vote does not matter when it comes to the president ?
I live in Texas, which is a "red state", so my vote does not count. I know who will win the electoral votes. On the other hand, if you live in a "battleground" state, your vote DOES count. It's time to do away withthe electoral college and choose a president by popular vote.
You're going to boycott his movies because he exercised his right to free speech? Or because he encouraged people to vote? That makes no sense. I don't agree with celebrity endorsements either but you should have a better reason, like them being lame.
Will Ferrell, will you do a crip walk if I vote tomorrow?
Goodluck to our President! God bless America.
I agree everyone should vote. If they do no they should not complain about is happening because they do not have the right.
I will never pay again to see a Ferrel movie. I am so sick of these Hollywood types thinking that because they have some level of sucsess as an actor or musician that they have a clue what it's like for the rest of us. Their motivation is guilt for making millions for a month's work while the rest of us work our butts off for a fraction
Seriously, lighten up cranky pants. Might be time for some counseling.
And you might be more successful if you could spell success correctly. Heehee
I hear ya and completely understand how you feel. I don't vote based on what a celebrity thinks or their point of view. I think they should all keep their mouths shut and stop trying to influence the stupid 18 yrs that don't know anything and certainly aren't bright enough to vote based on their needs/wants. They vote based on who Katy Perry and Will Ferrell and Lady Gag tells them to vote for. Besides, if you are going to use your celebrity for good and not evil, then just tell people to vote and stop influencing the young and dumb
Romney in a cake walk. Sorry Will your late half add endorsement just handed it over.
on the eve of election i pray for our country. Barack
He's so gross.
It Rocks!!!! U 2 knows whats best for our country!!!! OBAMA For PRESIDENT........
Hahaaa love him.
