Watch Bill Hader, Nicole Byer Spoof Millennial-Baiting Political Ads

Video part of Joss Whedon’s “Save the Day” PAC to mobilize young voters

Nicole Byer and Bill Hader poke fun at millennials in the latest installment of Joss Whedon’s “Save the Day” PAC. The video series is meant to mobilize young voters ahead of the 2016 election.

The clip begins with Byer “texting” on her phone and calling herself a “lazy and self-involved” millennial. She continues to make a few more pop culture-oriented jabs at herself and her interests before breaking character to address the director, played by Bill Hader, about the ridiculous script. “You have got to be kidding me,” she says with exasperation after a bad play on the word “race.” The director insists that the script is “inclusive” for “the youth.”

“This election will literally change history,” Byer argues. “Why don’t we talk about health care or student loans…”

“Now you’re coming off too over-prepared,” Hader says. Byer ends the ad with back-to-back references to Hamilton, Beyoncé’s “Formation” and the Weeknd, with the last one delivered with disgust from the comedian. “I can’t feel my face when I’m voting, but I like it. But I like it.”
