Affleck tells ‘kid brother’ New Hampshire in video to vote

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — Ben Affleck is calling on New Hampshire residents to get out and vote in the upcoming election.

In a new video, the Boston-born Affleck describes New Hampshire as his “kid brother,” while talking in a distinctly Boston accent about how much he loves the state.

Affleck talked up its fall foliage and hikes up Mount Monadnock, before encouraging residents of the Granite State to vote this November.

Peppering his pitch with profanity, Affleck encouraged those who care about women’s rights, the environment and people using bathrooms of their choice to register to vote. If they don’t, Affleck suggested the whole nation “is going to be cursed.”

The video was released Wednesday by NextGen Climate in partnership with Funny Or Die’s Everyone Votes campaign.
