CelebrityMark Ruffalo's Pledge to Get Naked Onscreen If Trump Loses Gets a Thumbs-Up from Hillary Clinton
She knows what the American people need.
It feels like this election has been going on for the duration of my entire life, but we're getting to the home stretch—where we watch debates, take polls seriously, and, most importantly, are courted by celebrities to register to vote. All celebrities are beautiful, individual snowflakes, but one thing they all have in common is that they really want you to vote.
The latest video comes from Joss Whedon's "Save the Day" campaign which is your run-of-the-mill vote campaign with an added level of self-awareness that they're famous. The video has two takeaways: First, Ashley Johnson is somehow crying throughout the video and it's unsettling at best. Why is she crying? Does she need help? Second, and most importantly, the video promises that Mark Ruffalo will get naked in his next movie if people vote.
I don't know if Mark Ruffalo is at the top of my list of celebrities I want to see naked. I know he would probably keep the necklaces that seem to constantly adorn his body on, but listen, if a movie had a nude Mark Ruffalo I wouldn't avoid it by any means. He is, after all, an architect of my personal sexual awakening due to 13 Going on 30, the whole message of which is "Aww, nice guys are cute." BUT ENOUGH ABOUT ME—what does Hillary Clinton think of this?
The true answer is probably, "I don't care, I'm trying to prevent world destruction," but the public answer, as told to People, is a jaunty little wink of a response: "I was planning to vote anyway. That said, Mark's a true patriot, I'm sure he won’t let America down."
Okay! A true patriot. That's fun and a little saucy. We can all collectively agree that Mark Ruffalo being naked is something we can enjoy. I'm enjoying this side of Hillary, who is like a great aunt at a family christening agreeing she'll have a sip of champagne. But you know that shit snowballs until she's the life of the party and everyone's looking at each other with wild awe in their eyes thinking, "Aunt Fran? Really?" but also "Alright, Aunt Fran!"
I personally do not want a president who cannot admit that Mark Ruffalo's nude body has something to offer the American people, so thank you, Hillary, for speaking up.
