Political odd couple Sean Penn and Kid Rock are the stars of a new PSA meant to remind us we are all Americans, despite our political differences.
The video, posted on Kid Rock’s YouTube channel, show’s the men trading insults in a bar after Penn sees news coverage of the conservative musician performing at a Mitt Romney rally. The two use just about every liberal and conservative stereotype in their attacks.
The famously liberal Penn zinged Kid Rock by calling him a “seal clubbing, Confederate flag waving, oil whoring, Chick-fil-A eating, water boarding, NASCAR loving, Cayman Islands bank account having, endangered species hunting, war mongering, redneck, toothless, Wall Street Troglodyte."
Kid rock strikes back, calling Penn a “tofu munching, welfare loving, Prius driving, Obama sucking, tree hugging, whale saving, gay marriage fantasizing, big government voting, PETA chasing, Oprah Winfrey masturbating, flag burning, socialist, ACLU, whiney assed granola-crat.”
But the men’s blind rage blooms into something like respect after an immigrant scolds them for not appreciating America’s freedom. Soon after, news of the U.S. casualties in Afghanistan gives them further pause.
Cue a montage of Kid Rock buying a Prius and attending a gay wedding, and Penn ditching his girlish martini for an American beer and donning a NASCAR shirt.
“The goal of the film is to tear down the one-dimensional political stereotypes portrayed by the media by confronting them head on,” reads the video's YouTube description. “It reminds us that what really matters is that we're all Americans, with diverse thoughts, opinions and stances on issues.”
Kid Rock also plead for political civility in August, during the Republican National Convention.
“I pray that no matter what happens, that this will not divide us as a country, because I believe that no matter what you see on TV, no matter what they tell you on the news channels over and over, all day long,“ he said.
