Unfortunately, it gets worse.

If you read my previous post "Desperate Measures" regarding the campaign by Declare Yourself, a national nonpartisan, nonprofit youth voter initiative aimed at energizing young adults to register and vote in the 2008 presidential election and not be silenced, you would have seen photos of Jessica Alba, Christina Aguilera and others posing with their mouths taped, gagged, stapled and sewn shut with tears running down their cheeks.

Now, there is a satirical new video by the voter initiative, featuring Jessica as a overly dramatic home shopping host of a show called "Snatch It Up With Jessica" complete with her mockery of an overtly Caucasian-sounding voice, trying to sell "The Muzzler 2008" featured in the photos mentioned above. And, sadly, I'm sure we can all surmise why the word snatch was used in the title.

This time Jessica is joined by Hayden Panettiere, who models the Muzzler. Hayden supposedly loves the Muzzler so much that she had hers customised in hot pink and surgically implanted in her face. Gee!

See for yourself...

"Jessica and Hayden have an amazing ability to connect with young adults," Marc Morgenstern, executive director of Declare Yourself, said in a statement. "Behind all the humor of the PSA lies a very serious message of what it actually means to sit out the election and effectively silence oneself."

And, although Jessica looks the best I think I've ever seen her and I love pink, I'm still not buying it...and I'm sure that the only thing the youths of America will now be {trying} to buy is "The Muzzler".

I was hoping Alba's talentless career would tank once she got pregnant. Too bad to see she's back.
This video is way more than annoying.
