Ben Affleck is doing his bit to get young folks out to vote, appearing in a "Funny or Die" video that encourages New Hampshire voters to cast a ballot Nov. 8.

In the video, co-sponsored by NextGen Climate, Affleck plays a sweet if somewhat dim-witted character named Benny "The Sweet One" O'Callahan. "But you might know me by my Hollywood name — Ben Affleck," says the actor, wearing a flannel shirt and down vest.

"I'm from Boston and Boston is in New England, which means New Hampshire is like my kid brothah."

The video, clearly aimed at millennials, is part of NextGen Climate's get-out-the-vote effort in New Hampshire, which has included organizing students on 13 college campuses in the Granite State.


Warning: This video contains a series of New England stereotypes, containing a lot of profanity, but not the letter "r"
