do you pledge?

This gave me chills, and not in a good way. While I agree with the sentiment behind some of these "pledges," it's the end of the video that gets me*. After watching the end, one of my co-workers said, "Doesn't this remind you of banners in Soviet Russia?"

MySpace Celebrity and Katalyst present The Presidential Pledge

*I post this not as a slam on the president but as an example of Hollywood's self-importance and Obama worship.


  1. I love that this whole "Pledge" thing will help people get involved in community service...but come on, it's like Obama gets inaugurated and boom! People are suddenly doing community service...not before, only after? Because under President Bush, that just wasn't possible. Weird...

  2. My thoughts exactly! Were they incapable of doing good before yesterday?

  3. hmmmm... all i'm gonna say is:

    GEORGE LOPEZ! Remember when we chatted with him in LA?!


  4. I believe he's the only celebrity I've ever "met."
