The Videogum “Louis C.K. Promise”: An Election Day Message

Look, I’m the same as you. I’ve been following the election since Mike Gravel spoke crazy to power. We’re all aware of what’s happening today, why it’s important, and how we feel about it. And for as much as we might be invested in the outcome or feel compulsively drawn towards the 24-hour news cycle’s endless barrage of coverage of every detail and angle of the race, there’s an equally powerful desire to be done with the whole thing. And it’s sites like Videogum that provide that stupid outlet. We should be respecting our readers awareness of election day by posting our regular schedule of trampoline accidents and baby farts to Hoobastank’s “The Reason” fan montages, as a relief on this anxious, serious day. But the problem is that for as much as we might recognize our apolitical role and the uselessness of our getting involved, a PROMISE is a PROMISE, and if Louis C.K. posts a last minute get out the vote video on YouTube, we’re going to post that last minute get out the vote video after the jump.

I cannot tell you how happy it would make me if an undecided voter, when asked how he finally made his decision, cited Louis C.K.’s vlog. Just kidding, I can: it would make me kind of happy. Like, the most reasonable amount of happiness that a human being could actually feel about something that’s mildly amusing but doesn’t really matter. Feelings!
