John Slattery to Make Video For New York Gay Marriage

Stars Try to Swing the Gay Marriage Vote in New York

John Slattery may play Mad Men's overgrown spoiled brat, but in real life he's joining other famous New Yorkers to ensure gay marriage passes in next month's state elections.

Celebrities like Julianne Moore, Mayor Bloomberg, Moby, and Kenneth Cole have already recorded videos for New Yorkers for Marriage Equality, sponsored by the gay-rights organization Human Rights Campaign. John's video's not out yet — Kevin Bacon, Kyra Sedgwick, Mark Ruffalo, and Tom Colicchio are also coming soon — but I'm looking forward to Mr. Slattery's more serious side.

The videos are short and low-budget looking, so I do wonder how effective they can be. Each features one celebrity only, and they're not really creative or sophisticated enough to turn viral. Who's going to watch them besides people that already support gay marriage? Or is the point just to get them out to vote?

Watch Julianne Moore's take after the jump.

I assume these ads are like the sex trafficking display mentioned a couple of posts down or the Cox/Arquette abuse ad - they're just to try & attract the attention of people who might not have focused on an issue up to now. But I honestly don't see how they make any difference to anything.

The only thing that will ever change my mind about any political issue is a logical, well thought out argument. Not a celebrity. Not high production value ads, or attacks on individuals who have opposing viewpoints. I understand that celebrities like to do these things because they feel like they are making a difference, but it always seems so silly. and this ad in particular is very boring.
