Teaming up with Funny or Die and MTV’s Rock the Vote, a “naked” Katy Perry released a video on Tuesday morning encouraging millennials to roll out of bed on Election Day morning even if they “look like s—t when you vote.”

“Yup, 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,” Ms. Perry says in the video. “In the name of democracy, any just out of bed look is A-OK,” she added, including, “if you’re like me, I sleep naked.”

At that point Ms. Perry removes her American-flag pajama as black censorship boxes appear on screen and two police officers show up to arrest the pop star for indecent exposure.

“I read the Constitution, I know that I have the right to vote naked!” Ms. Perry protests. “Did you read it, or did you just briefly scan it?” asks one officer before carting her off to a squad car.

“Scratch that. Gotta wear clothes. My bad,” says Ms. Perry from the back of a police squad car, seated next to a shirtless Joel McHale, also arrested for voting naked.

As the brief video ends, Ms. Perry — who performed at the 2016 Democratic convention and has endorsed Hillary Clinton — urges viewers to visit RocktheVote.com to register to vote. 

Rock the Vote and Funny or Die have not only teamed up in the past for get-out-the-vote videos but to promote partisan causes. In 2009, for example, the websites teamed up to encourage millennials to “F the vote” by refusing to have sex with opponents of Obamacare.
