Megan Fox's public service announcement

Many celebrities use their fame for personal reasons like restaurants and clothing lines and such, but since celebrities do have some influence on the public, many of them also agree to do public service announcements to draw the public's attention to important issues or to provide encouragement and support to those facing difficulties.

Megan Fox is one such celebrity who has agreed to use her influence to help kids in school who might be facing difficulties. Here's the public service announcement that she recorded.

In case there are any issues with the video above, here's the direct link.

Yeah, pretty awesome video, huh? :) I heard about it from the Kevin and Bean morning radio show, and I thought it was just too damn funny, especially since it's a promotion for the film "Jennifer's Body". I hadn't known anything about the film until I saw a one-sheet, and what caught my attention was not Megan Fox, but rather, Amanda Seyfried.

I *loved* Amanda in "Mamma Mia", and I like Megan Fox ok, so I was interested to hear that they were in a movie together. And then I found out it was a horror movie. I'm not really that big into horror movies, so I still wasn't sure, even though I was amused that it was written by the same person who had written "Juno".

And then last week, when we were at the movies, we saw the trailer for the film. And yeah, it looks like it has the regular elements of the horror genre, but it also has a *lot* of humour in it, which I really appreciated. Amanda looks really good in this too, and I could enjoy a chick fight scene or two between her and Megan. I won't be looking forward to the make-out scene between the two that is also purportedly in the film as much as a lot of other people, but it won't bother me either.

I was leaning a little more towards going after seeing the trailer, but I was still unsure - until I heard about this PSA and saw it for myself. That kind of wicked sense of humour is right up my alley, so I've decided I'm definitely going. Heck, I was the one (along with a friend) who wanted to see "Jason vs. Freddy", that the husband came with us to see, because I wanted to see if they did a good job with melding those two franchises.

For "Jennifer's Body", I'm just going to have to make sure that I have Teddy with me.

Here's the trailer for "Jennifer's Body".

Even though there are a number of stellar lines in the trailer, here's my favorite exchange:

Amanda Seyfried's character: I thought you only murdered boys.
Megan Fox's character: I go both ways.

And one of my friends who is (hopefully) reading this will know *exactly* why I find that so frickin' hilarious. ;)

That is very "frickin' hilarious"! The poster is up on the hallway wall here at work but I hadn't seen the trailer. Great line! :)

I wasn't actually interested in this movie until a few weeks ago when I found out that Diablo Cody wrote it. Can I go with you? I don't think I should go by myself, because, like, people might need to tell me what happened when my eyes were covered by my jacket. :)
