Do you remember your first time? Wait, no. Not that first time. The other first time . . . as in your first time voting. A handful of actors recently got together to hilariously tell stories about their “first times” in a short PSA urging citizens to register to vote in the upcoming midterm elections — though, admittedly, the innuendo-filled stories aren’t as funny when you put them in the right context. But you get it.
The PSA was organized by March For Our Lives with help from We Stand United, and it stars several Marvel actors including Chadwick Boseman, Chris Evans, Don Cheadle, and Scarlett Johansson alongside other famous faces such as Zoë Kravitz, Rosario Dawson, and Mark Ruffalo. In it, they discuss their first times voting in between giggles and lots of seemingly dirty jokes. “My first time was in the back of a firehouse,” Kravitz says before Cheadle follows up with, “Mine was in a church.” Referencing Hillary Clinton, Chris Evans later jokes that his first time with a woman was in 2016. “It felt good, but it ended badly,” he says alluding to the Democratic nominee’s shocking loss.
The video is being released exactly one week before Oct. 9, which is the voter registration deadline in most states, and it aims to push young people to vote on Nov. 6. “While the video may make you laugh, the message is clear,” March For Our Lives cofounder Delaney Tarr said in a statement. “No matter how or where you do it, all that matters is on November 6th we need all Americans to register and vote on Election Day. Our generation has the power to be heard all across America. We need every single American to join us in the fight.” Watch the full video above and register to vote at MarchForOurLives.com.
