Katy Perry isn’t feeling anyone who is thinking about sitting this presidential election out, and skipping out on voting. So she took matters into her own hands, and stripped down while voting in the name of inspiring others to do the same—only fully clothed.
In an amazing video she did with her pals at Funny or Die, she hops out of bed after her alarm goes off (at 10 a.m., which is possibly what time people in L.A. wake up?) and heads off to the polls. “You know, November 8 is election day, and I’ve got some great news: This year, you can look like shit when you vote.”
She has a quick glance at herself in the mirror, pronouncing her look “perfect” (she looks a mess, in case you were wondering), and joins scores of other voters rocking the just-out-of-bed-and-I-don’t-care look. After briefly cataloguing the various states that others are in—a woman wearing a child’s onesie, a “hunk” in kids’ briefs, a man covered in slime—she concludes, “or, if you’re like me, I sleep naked,” ripping off her American-flag pajamas.
“Let those babies loose!” she proclaims, before finding herself in handcuffs. “I read the constitution! I know that I have the right to vote naked,” she says. “Did you read it, or did you just briefly scan it?” one of the officers asks.
And then she finds herself in the back of a cop car with an also-naked Joel McHale, for some reason. “You too?” he asks. As the police car drives off into the distance, Perry issues an entreaty: “Remember to vote. Who cares what you wear. Just wear clothes.”
