Joss Whedon released a star-studded voter public service announcement last week, and Stephen Colbert, not to be outdone, is showing off his famous friends in a humorous PSA of his own. Since Tuesday was National Voter Registration Day, the Late Show host made a video to show how important voting is—so important that the whole thing is in shot in black and white. Colbert is joined by George Takei, America Ferrera, Tituss Burgess, and more to urge you to register so you too can share the joy of doing something that is “better than losing your virginity on Christmas morning.”

So go register to vote (not boat), and make your children—or at least, Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s children—proud.
