When Bill Clinton appeared on the “The Arsenio Hall Show” playing the saxophone, you knew this wasn’t your typical presidential candidate. That unexpected move marked a turning point in his campaign and help build his support with minority groups and the youth vote. Hoping to drum up the same support, Clinton went to Funny or Die to film a viral video for his Clinton Foundation. The 42nd US President enlists a roster of celebrities for his surprisingly entertaining clip.
In the video, Ben Stiller holds a brainstorming session where Matt Damon, Kristin Wigg, Mary Steenburgen, Ted Danson and Sean Penn come up with ideas for the Clinton Foundation. Ranging from the hilarious to the ridiculous, the suggestions frustrate the moderating Stiller. When Clinton calls, Stiller is forced to relay their lack of intelligent ideas. Shockingly, Clinton approves of all the concepts and hails them as being the best he’s ever heard. Watch the clip to see why Clinton is so agreeable. I won’t spoil the ending for you.
What did you think of the video? Which suggestion was the most ridiculous? Sound off below.
