If you want to win an election for Governor of Georgia, you don’t need to spend a bunch of money on political attack ads against your opponent. All you need is the most beloved celebrity in the history of celebrity to campaign for you door-to-door.
Will Ferrell went Old School in support of Democratic candidate Stacey Abrams by knocking on doors to encourage people to vote early. Next to maybe Jesus, is there anyone better to have in your corner?
In fact, I’m going to go out on a limb here and say I’d choose Ferrell over Jesus. When you’re Jesus it’s hard not to bring religion into the mix, so why risk that. Everyone loves Will Ferrell! “Darlene, who’s at the damn door?! Oh my God! It’s Ricky Bobby!!!” Score two votes from a couple that’s never voted before.
I usually lean Republican but I’d vote Marxist if it got me a selfie with Will Ferrell. I don’t know Stacey Abrams and I don’t know her politics but I love me some Will Ferrell. I’m not assuming the fine people of Georgia are as shallow as I am, but if I was a betting man I’d take Abrams at +100. By the way, she’s the only candidate that’s not opposing sports betting legislation. I looked it up.
