Political odd couple Sean Penn and Kid Rock are the stars of a new PSA meant to remind us we are all Americans, despite our political differences. In the video, they verbally abuse each other for their personal beliefs. But the men’s blind rage blooms into something like respect after an immigrant scolds them for not appreciating America’s freedom. Soon after, news of the U.S. casualties in Afghanistan gives them further pause.
Cue a montage of Kid Rock buying a Prius and attending a gay wedding, and Penn ditching his girlish martini for an American beer and donning a NASCAR shirt.
“The goal of the film is to tear down the one-dimensional political stereotypes portrayed by the media by confronting them head on,” reads the video’s YouTube description. “It reminds us that what really matters is that we’re all Americans, with diverse thoughts, opinions and stances on issues.”
“I pray that no matter what happens, that this will not divide us as a country, because I believe that no matter what you see on TV, no matter what they tell you on the news channels over and over, all day long,“ he said.
