'Bro Biden' Crashes A College Party For A Good Cause

Biden and "Workaholics" actor Adam Devine make a pretty good duo.

Vice President Joe Biden has a unique appeal among working class white Americans, a demographic that Hillary Clinton's camp has tasked him with winning over this election. But the silver-haired fox also has a pop culture caricature, bro Biden, that he sort of lived up to in a Funny or Die video to raise awareness about campus sexual assault prevention. Together with actor Adam Devine, Biden stars in a PSA in which the duo crashes a college party to remind students to do their part in preventing sexual assault and rape. 

The video is part of the White House's "It's On Us" campaign that challenges Americans to stop being bystanders and to do their part to end sexual assault in colleges.


The video's central message is that everyone can and should prevent sexual assault on campus. "So like, if you see, like, a buddy, and he's talking to someone that's too drunk to consent, you tell that buddy, 'Yo buddy, chill!'" Devine says in the video. "And then you make sure that drunk person gets home safe."

Campus sexual assault is a pressing issue that only in recent years has gained national attention. According to statistics from the National Sexual Violence Resource Center, one in five women and one in 16 men are sexually assaulted while in college. But even that figure is potentially understated, as more than 90 percent of sexual assault victims on college campuses do not report the assault.

But as survivors speak up against sexual assault in ever increasing numbers and awareness campaigns push for colleges to do better by its students who have been victimized, there is a concerted, if not yet clear national effort to end the all-too prevalent issue.
