Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom play themselves as freedom fighters from a dystopian future in a new ad for a political group called “Represent Us.” Per their press release, “RepresentUs is the nation’s largest grassroots anti-corruption organization, bringing together conservatives, progressives, and everyone in between to pass anti-corruption laws in cities and states to stop political bribery, end secret money, and fix our broken elections.”
The ad encourages Americans to urge their representatives to vote for the For The People Act
In the short film, called “Transmissions From The Future,” Bloom and Perry transmit a message to America today. Bloom says, “You are our only hope. The America you know doesn’t exist in our future. Democracy is dead. We have no voice.”
Perry adds, “It started when voter suppression ran wild all over America. The voting rights bills died in the Senate. Polling places closed. We lost our right to vote,” a white-haired and fearful Perry warns Americans in the video.
