On Friday we talked about a new short film featuring actor Sean Penn and singer Kid Rock that shows that people on opposite sides of the political spectrum can find common ground. 

In all seriousness, a great way to get people involved in politics is by doing something humorous especially now when it seems like a lot of people have lost interest in the political system. As a matter of fact, if you take a look at any great performer or artist, they have always made their art a vehicle for a message but they never hit you over the head with it. There is even a chance that you might not get the message but the artist is thankful that you still appreciate what they’re doing. 

South Park is a great example of this; you are entertained by the comedy and if you care about the message you will catch it, if not, you will still have a laugh.  That is what is so great about art. 

In the video, Sean Penn and Kid Rock have a political argument that almost turns into a brawl, and then you see what happens that causes them to become friends. 

Here is the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oSQJ2ULuhb8&feature=youtu.be
 
If you want to get a message out, you have to make it entertaining to the point where people are going to enjoy it and not feel like they are getting a preachy lecture.
