Justin Timberlake, Jessica Biel for Obama Woo College Students [VIDEO]

Posted: Updated:
Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel made a stop in Las Vegas recently to woo college students for Barack Obama. Produced by Michael Gonzalez of Nevada for MTV's Choose or Lose Street Team '08 at chooseorlose.com. (Oct. 22)

In swing-state Nevada, Justin Timberlake stands on stage holding a mic and introduces himself as Jessica Biel from 7th Heaven. Biel does same claiming to be Timberlake by way of the Mickey Mouse Club. Then it's on to the mostly serious business of getting Barack Obama elected with Biel saying that 50% of youth (in the last presidential election?) did not vote. Timberlake chimes in to say that even he did an absentee ballot in Florida so "hopefully my vote got counted (crowd laughter) That's questionable...."

The celebs go on to sell Obama's tuition quid pro quo of tax credits in exchange for community service. It's all wrapped up with some beatboxing from Timberlake.

Oh, and we like the producer's choice to linger on the close-up of the rainbow Obama "choice" button near the top of the piece.
