Shawn Pyfrom and Penn Badgley , a.k.a. Andrew van de Kamp from Desperate Housewives and Dan Humphrey from the Greatest Show of Our Time, teamed up in Ohio for this seemingly impromptu political spot. In urging Ohio voters to get to the ballot box early, they don't mention Barack Obama by name, but they're standing in front of a wall of Obama/Biden posters, and they urge Ohioans to "vote for change." They also make a terrible joke about their names near the end. It's kinda cute, but in a very specific way that we're not sure will be helpful. That is, we're just not sure there are any lecherous gay men in Ohio who aren't already voting for Obama.
