Public Service Announcement

Daniel Craig and Benicio Del Toro are in this White House video on ending sexual assault

Seth Meyers, Steve Carrell and Dulé Hill all appear in the video.

DANIEL CRAIG AND a number of other celebrities have appeared in an all-male White House video talking about the need to stop sexual assaults.

The 60-second public service announcement entitled “1 is 2 many”  is part of a major campaign by the Obama administration on reducing violence against women.

Benicio Del Toro, Seth Meyers, Steve Carrell and Dulé Hill all appear in the video, along with Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden.

Young women still face the highest rates of sexual assault and violence in the US, with an estimated 1 in 5 women  victims of sexual assault while they are in college. The issue of sexual assault against women aged 16-24 has been under sustained focus in recent months.

In the video, Biden says “If I saw it happening, I was taught that you have to do something about it”.

The video has almost one quarter of a million views in its first 24 hours.

What do you think of the video? Would something like this have an impact in Ireland?
