This ad is probably aimed more at older people, but since we younger people had something called “Nick At Nite” growing up, we’ll get it too. Ron Howard does some things he said he would never do, just to draw attention to his political cause (this is one of those times when further description would mess up the joke):

That was so heartfelt, adorable, and possibly influential on the crucial “old” vote that I won’t even make the obvious “Get out the vote ads have truly jumped the shark” joke.
