Hilarious New Video Pokes Fun of Ridiculous Celebrity Voting PSAs

Now is the right time for a good, hearty chuckle.

One of the most annoying aspects of election season is always the bombardment of political ads that get dropped on you every time you turn on the TV. It’s usually the same three or four ads played on an endless loop, repeated some many times that it begins to feel like an enhanced interrogation technique designed to drive you to the brink of madness so you’ll spill your guts. What information these folks seem to be after is anybody’s guess.

While these are obnoxious, they don’t hold a candle to how self-righteous, smug, and down right goofy the PSA type ads from celebrities are. You know, the ones urging you to just “go out and vote” when what they really mean is “go out and vote Democrat?”

Heck, some female celebrities — Chelsea Handler for example — are so desperate for attention they’ll even strip naked and ask you to vote, as if that’s going to be sufficient motivation to get you out to the polls and vote blue.

After losing the House to the Democrats and seeing so many celebrities online gloating about their victory — we’d probably be doing the exact same thing if we had retained it — it’s nice to get in a good chuckle.

American Music Icon Dead at 72; Was Set to Tour This Summer

Rest in peace, amigo.

When it comes to gritty guitars and even grittier songs, there is no act quite like that little ol’ band from Texas. ZZ Top mainlined American blues standards directly into the electric era of 1970’s rock, and then reinvented the genre once again with the synthesizers of the 1980’s.  From there, the band toured the world incessantly, bringing their grimy grooves and unforgettable stage presence to audiences from Dusseldorf to Delaware. Now, just weeks before the band was set to take to the road once again, one member of the holy triumvirate of honky-tonk has passed away. Dusty Hill, the bassist for ZZ Top, has died. He was 72. Billy Gibbons and Frank Beard of the Texas-based trio issued a statement to Variety on Tuesday, writing: “We are saddened by the news today that our Compadre, Dusty Hill, has passed away in his sleep at home in Houston, TX. We, along with legions of ZZ Top fans around the world, will miss your steadfast presence, your good nature and enduring commitment to providing that monumental bottom to the ‘Top’. We will forever be connected to that ‘Blues Shuffle in C.’” And then, echoing the sentiments of music fans the nation over: “You will be missed greatly, amigo,” the statement added. We couldn’t have said it better ourselves, so we’ll just leave you all with a classic. Make sure to turns those speakers up, y’all. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s5WB5ouP-8c

WOW!

With nearly half of Americans now fully vaccinated against COVID-19, the Biden administration has hit a wall.  The folks who are left unvaccinated are, by and large, abstaining by their own decision.  They don’t want a vaccine, and they don’t believe that the federal government has any right to tell them otherwise. But some private companies have begun suggesting that they may institute new regulations that would require customers or users to prove that they’ve been vaccinated in order to interact with them.  This could include some convert venues requiring that ticket holders can prove their vaccine status before seeing their favorite musical acts once they hit the road again. Legendary blues guitarist Eric Clapton isn’t into it.  At all. Eric Clapton has said he will not perform at any venues that require attendees to prove that they have received their full vaccination from the coronavirus. The musician and outspoken vaccine skeptic issued a statement that was highly critical of U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s announcement that vaccine passes would be required to enter nightclubs and other live performance venues in light of increasing coronavirus cases. The “Wonderful Tonight” singer issued a statement on the Telegram account of film producer and architect Robin Monotti, a known COVID-19 vaccination skeptic as well. In it, he issued a direct response to Johnson’s announcement and called the situation for those who do not wish to get the vaccine discriminatory. “Slow hand” got right to the point. “Following the PM’s announcement on Monday the 19th of July 2021 I feel honor-bound to make an announcement of my own,” Clapton said. “I wish to say that I will not perform on any stage where there is a discriminated audience present. Unless there is provision made for all people to attend, I reserve the right to cancel…
