Lena Dunham totally makes fun of herself with this intentionally terrible Hillary Clinton rap, and thank you world

Alright, it’s less than a week to go until we vote for our next president, and it kinda feels like we’ve seen enough PSAs to last a lifetime. So thank the heavens that Lena Dunham has released a parody Hillary Clinton PSA which basically pokes some gentle fun at every celebrity PSA you’ve seen this season (while still kinda subversively being a real PSA for Hillary…so props for cleverness).

And we’ve seen everything from Joss Whedon’s Save the Day, to Aziz Ansari, to the one where Julia Louis-Dreyfus talks to millennials about voting — so there’s rich material to draw from.

This Funny Or Die video is called “Sensual Pantsuit Anthem,” and we’re so glad that Dunham chose this medium to express herself. This election has us tense AF, so this was seriously a welcome relief.

Okay, ready? Press play, and start rapping (badly)!

"She's been a lawyer, First Lady, Senator plus a mom, fighting for justice since the age of 15, and she did it in a man's world. [...] She worked harder than her man did, still saw her grandkids, and people have the nerve to ask her what her plan is?"


In an interview with Vulture, Dunham explains her celebrity-PSA spoofing:

"There are so many PSAs at this point, so it's fun to take a step back and go, "How many of these are working?" We should all be doing our part, but are they necessarily the smartest way that we can be going about it?"

She goes on to admit that she’s a “crazed Hillary Clinton fan,” and was interested in portraying a character who took it one step further into the “delusional” fan territory.

"I liked the idea of a well-meaning, ridiculous white girl who thinks she's helping the election by exposing her body and writing thoughtless rap music."

Thanks, Lena. Because this pure goofiness genuinely helped us breath a little better in what’s become one of the tensest elections of our lives.  Keep it going, girl!
