Af­fleck tells ‘kid brother’ New Hamp­shire in video to vote

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - KICKOFF -

Ben Af­fleck is call­ing on New Hamp­shire res­i­dents to get out and vote in the up­com­ing elec­tion.

In a new video, the Bos­ton-born Af­fleck de­scribes New Hamp­shire as his “kid brother,” while talk­ing in a dis­tinctly Bos­ton ac­cent about how much he loves the state. Af­fleck talked up its fall fo­liage and hikes up Mount Mon­ad­nock, be­fore en­cour­ag­ing res­i­dents of the Granite State to vote this Novem­ber.

Pep­per­ing his pitch with pro­fan­ity, Af­fleck en­cour­aged those who care about women’s rights, the en­vi­ron­ment and peo­ple us­ing bath­rooms of their choice to reg­is­ter to vote. If they don’t, Af­fleck sug­gested the whole na­tion “is go­ing to be cursed.”

The video was re­leased Wed­nes­day by Nex­tGen Cli­mate in part­ner­ship with Funny Or Die’s Ev­ery­one Votes cam­paign.
