Actress, activist, and fitness maven Jane Fonda leads a new all-star workout video with the aim of getting the people fit to exercise their right to vote in the 2020 elections.
The Exercise That Vote clip harks back to the workout videos Fonda released during the Eighties and early Nineties. It’s replete with neon-colored unitards, grainy VHS graphics and cameos from Katy Perry, Kerry Washington, Orlando Bloom, Amy Schumer, Ashley Benson, Ken Jeong, Vanessa Hudgens, and Shaquille O’Neal.
“We need you to be in shape in the upcoming race,” Fonda says in the video. “I need you to be strong, I need you to be laser-focused, I need you to be fully committed to the task at hand, so let’s get ready to exercise our right to vote.”
