Ben Affleck Uses His Boston Accent to Urge New Hampshire to Vote in Hilarious PSA

With some good old Boston-encouragement

Ben Affleck may be a good old Boston boy through and through, but that doesn’t mean he’s not willing to show some love for his home state’s northern neighbor, New Hampshire.

In a new PSA for NextGen Climate & Funny or Die’s “Everyone Votes!” campaign, Benny “The Sweet One” O’Callaghan — as The Accountant star calls himself — makes a plea to New Hampshirites to head to the polls to vote for the next president of the United States in the 2016 election.

“New Hampshire is wicked f—ing important in presidential politics,” he says in a thick Boston accent. “So if you give a sh– about women’s rights, if you care about keeping the environment safe for future generations, ever hear of it? You care about people getting to piss in the f—ing bathroom of their choice? Then guess who’s got your back in this election? That’s right, my basically home state New Hampshire.”
