In a hilarious Funny or Die video, Katy Perry sets out to show voters you don’t need to look like anything special to hit the polls. Worried about bumping into someone you know there? Doesn’t matter. Afraid you’ll meet the love of your life and look like a slob? Nobody cares.
All that matters is that you get out and vote, but Perry makes one tragic mistake right as she’s arriving at her voting location.
Let’s start at the beginning. First, the pop star’s alarm goes off, and she practically leaps out of bed with popcorn and a lollipop in her hair (how else would Katy Perry wake up?). She then states, “This year, you can look like sh*t when you vote!” before looking in the mirror and admiring her chaotic, lipstick smeared reflection.
Then, it’s off to the polls. “I’ve briefly scanned the constitution, and nowhere does it say you can’t just roll out of bed and come to the polls in whatever state you woke up in,” the singer cheerily says.
Thankfully, it seems everybody else at this polling station was on the same page. There’s an elderly woman with a face mask and rollers, a “hunk in kids’ briefs,” sleeping beauty, a creepy dude covered in slime and several more.
Unfortunately, that’s when things get rough for Perry because she reveals that she sleeps naked and rips her flag-covered pajamas off. The cops show up to arrest her, but once she gets thrown into the back of the cop car, another perpetrator is revealed: Joel McHale is also buck naked in the back seat.
As a final hurrah as they get carried off by police, Perry yells out the window to remind everybody to wear clothes to the polls.

We have to admit, voting would be a lot more fun if done Katy Perry’s way.
