Not Giving Up Their Shot: Obama, George W. Bush, ‘Hamilton’ Cast Would Like You To Vote

A panoply of politicians, musicians, and other celebrities appear in a new video put together by the cast of Hamilton to encourage people to vote. The bipartisan effort features Elizabeth Warren, Paul Ryan, Questlove, Jimmy Fallon, Nas, the cast of Hamilton including the omnipresent Lin-Manuel Miranda, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama.

“Our future depends on you casting a ballot,” Bush says before video cuts to Obama, who adds: “If you’re inspired by Hamilton, if you’re inspired by our founders, understand the system of government only works if you participate.”

It’s not quite as funny as Stephen Colbert’s recent voting video, but it is impressive to get Warren and Ryan into the same clip.

Watch the video below, and learn how to register to vote here.
