Kid Rock and Sean Penn put their political differences aside to film a public service announcement about putting your political differences aside. In this 11-minute video called Americans, from new filmmaker Jameson Stafford, the two celebs run through just about every common stereotype one party has for the other, before finding a middle ground (hint: it’s freedom).
The video begins with Sean Penn bumping into an overalls-clad Kid Rock at the bar and the two exchange a series of insults, as one might expect a real-life encounter to play out. The ranting is cut short, however, when they see a news report on the deaths of U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan; this prompts them to toast freedom and embark on a series of equally cliche “odd couple” adventures (driving around in a Prius, drinking domestic beer, attending a gay marriage, building American flag sand sculptures). The message? “Don’t let politics divide us.”
Kid Rock, you might remember, performed “Born Free” at a Romney rally back in February and Penn has never, ever, ever kept silent about his liberal leanings (or anything else for that matter).
