Lil Jon wants you to 'Turn OUT For What'.
The celebrities "turned out" en masse for a video to encourage young Americans to take part in the midterm elections on November 4th. The video is for Rock the Vote, an organisation which aims to increase voter turnout.
The video features Lil Jon speaking on the phone to his 'aunt' Goldberg as he heads to the polling station where he jumps into a host of stars. The video then alters the lyrics of his popular hit, featuring DJ Snake, 'Turn Down For What' to 'Turn OUT For What'.
Each celebrity in the video explained why they were taking part in the democratic process including Lil Jon who joked he was turning out for the legalising of marijuana. One Tree Hill actress Bush was turning out for women's rights; Orange Is the New Black's Lyonne appropriately for prison reform; Glee's Criss for education; Girls' Dunham for reproductive rights; Io Echo band member Gika for human rights.

As for actor Armisen, he joked the only reason he was turning out was to "impressive his friends" which he joked "is the only reason to do anything."
Rock The Vote further explained their hopes for the video in an email to Buzzfeed. A representative for the organisation said "We hope that the video will connect the dots between caring about an issue and turning out to make a difference - even in a year where the president isn't on the ballot."
This overlong comedy is so episodic that watching it is exactly like sitting through five...
