Three Alumni Go Viral with “No on Prop 8” Celebrity Videos

On November 4th, Californians will be asked to make a monumental civil rights decision around the issue of same-sex marriage.

Last week, three Los Angeles based Penn alumni decided to take action against this Proposition 8.  Executive producers Todd Shotz (C’96) and Andrew Oldershaw (C’02), as well as writer/director  Dan Kay (C’97) created four very viral PSAs against this proposition including the talents of Margaret Cho and Molly Ringwald.  FYI, Dan Kay wrote and directed the one with Margaret Cho (see above).

Since they debuted these videos, they have gotten over a million hits on Perez Hilton, Huffington Post,, and E! Online. Yesterday, Wolf Blitzer showed one of them on CNN. Because of the response, they’re already deep into pre-production on more.

Per Todd, “We could not have hoped for more coverage to add our support to this campaign. Enjoy! And of course, please vote NO on Prop 8.”
