Jessica Alba Sports Muzzle to Score Votes



In trying to get out the vote, some Hollywood celebs tend to be overly dramatic.

In the last election, Cameron Diaz claimed that failure to vote would result in the legalization of rape.

P. Diddy, of course, has his running “Vote or Die!” program.

Now Jessica Alba is getting into the election act with an ad that has her wearing a Hannibal Lecter-type mask.

With tears running down her cheeks the actress appears muzzled, accompanied by this message: “Only you can silence yourself. Make them hear you. Register to vote now.”

Why a muzzle?

“If you don't register and vote and make a difference, and hopefully change the bad things that are happening in our country, you are essentially just binding and muzzling yourself,” Alba explains to People magazine.

The Democrats are always seeking new ways to motivate younger voters who overwhelmingly vote the Dem way.

“I think it is important for young people to be aware of the need we have in this country to get them more active politically,” Alba says.

She adds, “People respond to things that are shocking.”

A staged muzzling—I’m shocked, shocked I tell you!
