Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, Ellen DeGeneres and more encourage young people to vote in new advertisement.

VOTE 4 STUFF - A group of Hollywood celebrities encourage young people to vote in a new advertisement by organization "Vote 4 Stuff." Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, Ellen DeGeneres, Zac Efron, Selena Gomez and others first joke about what they would vote for if they could vote for anything.

"I vote yes on cats," said Benicio Del Toro.

"Vote to keep tigers out of schools," said Zac Efron.

"Women should have the right to vote...They do? Ok, well that's good," said Ellen DeGeneres.

The group then offers up some more serious suggestions - from jobs to climate change, and from women's reproductive rights to foreign policy.

"We should pay teachers - like, really pay them," said Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

They then encourage viewers to make their own videos detailing what 'stuff' is important to them and summit them to "Vote 4 Stuff" to be included in future advertisements.

DiCaprio's production company, Appian Way, was involved in the making of the ad.
