This Week's Inspirational Pop Culture Moments

Funny or Die takes on the very serious issue of voting, a Fairy Jobmother helps families get back on their feet, and Major League Baseball stands up to Cancer —here are this week's most inspirational pop culture moments.

A Celebrity Reminder to Vote: It Only Takes Ten Minutes 

Voting in next week's elections is no joke. But the masterminds at Funny or Die have gathered a group of actors to remind people that they shouldn't let the day slip by without dropping their pick in the local ballot box.

Among the socially conscientious stars are Aziz Ansari and his Parks and Recreation co-star Adam Scott, Ron Livingston from Office Space, and Donald Glover from Community. Their message—it takes ten minutes to vote and there are worse ways to spend that time.

They're even kind enough to suggest some alternatives.

Harold and Kumar star and former Associate Director in the White House Office of Public Engagement, Kal Penn, suggests that you could, "Stay on hold with your insurance company to dispute a denied claim."

Or, perhaps, like Mary Lynn Rajskub from 24 recommends you could, "Try to sell raw meat to people stuck in traffic" or "drink your espresso in a thousand tiny sips."

We think we'll just go to our local polling place next Tuesday. And we hope you do, too.
