The Schmooze

Hillary Clinton is ‘The Most Interesting Woman in the World.’ Just Ask James Franco.

James Franco wants you to vote for Hillary Clinton, and he’s come up with a novel way to sell her candidacy — producing a commercial that presents her as “the most interesting woman in the world.”

In the ad — a spoof on Dos Equis beer’s “Most Interesting Man in the World” spots — Franco narrates over footage of Clinton giving speeches, dancing with Bill and greeting fans.

“She didn’t just bring Iran to the table, she whittled the table from a single piece of oak,” Franco said.

“Her laugh is in the Smithsonian. Yoda was her apprentice. She’s … the Most Interesting Woman in the World.”

As the commercial ends, the screen cuts to Franco, half-nude and wrapping himself in a towel with a Hillary Clinton logo on it.

“I don’t always endorse candidates, but when I do they’re extraordinary.” Franco says.

Watch it, and get ready to vote responsibly next week, folks.
