Get Up and Vote and Then Watch Some Playmates!

July 3, 2007 10:01 AM

What do you get when you combine the “Reno 911!” creators and a non-profit youth voter initiative?

A revamped Web site, launched yesterday, at www.declareyourself.com that’s really funny to those well past 18 too.

The site and the new video shorts are designed to encourage 18-year-olds to vote and register to vote. So I may not be the demo the site is targeting. Then again, maybe I am. Because at 34, I think the videos are, dare I say, laugh out loud funny.

I can’t vouch for their appeal to someone 16 years younger, but the sarcasm alone makes these shorts worth watching for any of you old folks like me who read this blog.

And finally for all 700,000 or so of you who declared your loyalty to the iPhone, Playboy wants to make your life better with a collection of multimedia features for the new phone. You know, non-nude wallpapers, a photo album with presumably nude pictures and the Playboy Cyber Girl video.
