Sean Penn and Kid Rock Have Bipartisan Bromance, Attend Gay Wedding in New ‘Americans’ PSA: VIDEO


Sean Penn and Kid Rock have released a heavy-handed PSA called "Americans" meant to encourage civil discourse and come to terms with our political differences.

CosmoThe description to the heavy-handed, 11-minute clip reads:

The goal of the film is to tear down the one-dimensional political stereotypes portrayed by the media by confronting them head on. It reminds us that what really matters is that we're all Americans, with diverse thoughts, opinions and stances on issues. We are millions of unique, individual parts, the sum of which comprise a whole that is the shining beacon of freedom throughout the world. The film reminds us to be proud of our differences, and to never forget that we're all in this together as Americans.

The clip shows the two stars arguing over political issues (and dick sizes) in a bar before a news report about military deaths in Afghanistan comes on, at which time they decide to embrace each other's differences in the name of freedom, and then embark on a bipartisan bromance in which they buy a Prius, attend an environmental rally, and a gay wedding (where one of the men wears a bridal veil). Kid Rock even convinces Penn to stop drinking Cosmopolitans (presumably the liberal wussy drink) and try a beer!

At the end, they exchange PETA and NASCAR t-shirts and walk on a beach as the sun sets.

While the message is certainly an honorable one, the execution is often cringeworthy.

    If I ever went to a gay wedding like the one pictured I would both vomit and beat the grooms severely. Weddings are excruciating enough without it being a demeaning faux drag show.

  2. Phil says

    When I look at them I am reminded of John Gielgud saying to Lisa Minelli in Arthur” “Usually one must go to a bowling alley to meet a woman of your stature.”

  3. Markus says

    I wish them happiness, everyone should be free to choose their wedding the way they want it, free to wear what they want and celebrate all they can unless and until it concerns others! So, you can swallow and drink your puke and stop being hypocritical. This is how true Freedom and Equality could be established!

    if you take away the veil and dress, the bride is pretty sexy from the still, but i don’t think i could deal with watching it just for a couple seconds of eye-candy, it sounds ridiculous.

  5. db says

    AJ, whether you like what they do or not you have no right to beat the grooms. You need to deal with your rage issues. Also, I would love it if you tried to beat the grooms and the one wearing the dress whooped your ass.

  6. Randy says

    How stupid. The only thing that results when left and right get together in the USA is that the right punches the left in the nuts.

    Please don’t fall for this again.

    Ughhh… I skipped thru to the wedding part. It was awful.

    I’ve never seen a gay wedding with a groom in a dress. Ever- unless it was a the cover of the National Review, mocking us and equality. Very few gay men do do drag, but even those who do- I doubt would wear a dress to their own wedding. There’s nothing wrong with cross-dressing, but just as many people of different racial backgrounds find offensive racial stereotypes unfunny- this is unfunny.

    That Sean Penn participated and orchestrated this is sickening. He could and SHOULD have done better. In the vid, he’s shown laughing and clapping, while Kid Rock is shaking his head in disgust- how is that bipartisanship? Why include it at all- especially done so tastelessly and ridiculously? As a community- we and our straight allies have spent millions of dollars trying to improve an d grant us rights- something we all take seriously. Why did Sean Penn and Kid Rock have to present it in such an obvious mockery and apery of straight marriage- I’m just so disgusted.
