If Puff Daddy telling you a few years ago to vote or meet your untimely demise wasn't enough to get you to the polls, perhaps this inspiring video from Larry David will do the trick.

In the spot, which is a PSA for OurTime.org, David tells "young people" that it's basically just kind of dumb not to take advantage of this particular constitutional right.

"I would say to you, it's very important to vote," he says. "Not to vote? Why are you even living here? You could be living anywhere. You could be living in Iran or North Korea. How would you like that?"
