That is scary! We are all stressed the fuck out! And some of us, it turns out, are using that stress to record goofy novelty songs about how Clinton should be president. Whatever it takes, I guess?
Today, Rachel Bloom, star and creator of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend has shared her video for “Holy Shit (You’ve Got To Vote),” a parody of the “We Are The World”-style all-star singalong that uses colorfully blunt language to pound home the point that everyone needs to vote. The song has a cast of contributors that includes Moby, Elizabeth Banks, Adam Scott, Amber Rose, and a whole lot of people who are on sitcoms. It made me chuckle a couple of times. Here’s that video:
Meanwhile, yesterday Girls star and creator Lena Dunham posted her video for “Sensual Pantsuit Anthem,” her novelty pro-Hillary rap song, which features Charlamagne Tha God and Cynthia Ervivo. The joke here, at least, seems to be at Dunham’s own expense. But still, it’s really bad. Watch it below.
