Matt Damon won’t use the toilets!

In February of this year Matt Damon decided to go on a “toilet strike” to raise awareness about the lack of availability to clean water in the world.

In a fake interview with a few well known actors in the crowd, Matt tried to explain why the strike was so important to him : “In protest of this global tragedy, until this issue is resolved, until everybody has access to clean water and sanitation, I will not go to the bathroom,”.

The strike is obviously fake, but the issues are real since 2.5 billion people around the world lack access to these essential elements.

His video announcement got over a million Youtube hits already but that was only the begining.

Ever since, celebs have been helping him spread the word by making viral videos linked to the subject.

Thank God Matt has a good sense of humour because the latest one makes fun of him even more than the others!

After Jason Bateman, Jessica Biel and Josh Gad, it was Bono, Olivia Wilde, and Richard Branson’s turn.

Here’s the final result for the video they posted over the weekend :

And on the same note, here are the previous videos I mentionned :
