Celebrities speak out against (insert name of your favorite cause here)

Haiti Earthquake Relief, Darfur, Land Mines, End World Hunger, Cure AIDS, Fight Global Warming, Save the Whales, Save the Baby Seals, Save the Spotted Owl, Save the Snail Darter, Save the Lowland Gorilla...pick one of world's ills and/or an endangered species and a celebrity, or group of celebrities has probably cut a public service announcement demanding an immediate end to: fill in the blank (_________________.)

The latest celebrity cause? "Demand A Plan to End Gun Violence."

Two groups, one calling itself Mayors Against Illegal Guns, and the other, DemandAPlan.org, have produced a PSA that calls on Americans to "demand that President Obama and Congress step forward with a plan to end gun violence."

Watch the celebrities and their "Demand a Plan" video by clicking here.

Now, watch a version of the video that's been edited to include violent scenes from movies starring just about every celebrity who appears in the PSA. They all seem oblivious to the fact that they work in an industry that glorifies gun violence.

Maybe their next project should be one the calls for an end to "celebrity hypocrisy."
