Last month, Matt Damon announced that he was going on a ‘toilet strike’ and now he has some celebrity friends joining him. Jason Bateman, Josh Gad and Jessica Biel starred in a new video for Water.org.
Damon held a ‘press conference’ last month announcing that he will not use a bathroom until everyone in the world has access to clean water and sanitation.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Biel, Gad and Bateman are now supporting the movement, which has been called Strike With Me. In the new video, Gad and Biel talk about how well they have done so far.
While it is filled with jokes (Biel reveals that her farts “smelled like music”), the cause is very serious. Water.org claim that 2.5 million people don’t have access to sanitation, while 800 million do not have access to clean water to drink. The group also states that 4,000 children die each day due to diseases related to poor sanitation.
