With the election right around the corner, Gabourey Sidibe wants to put an end to all the excuses people use to avoid political participation: “This election is a mess;” “My vote doesn’t count;” “I don’t like either candidate.”

Sound like you or someone you know? Then listen up, because Sidibe has an important message regarding what’s at stake with this election – and it involves an apocalypse GIF.

In a pro-Clinton voting PSA directed by Precious film director Lisa Cortés titled “Girl, Just Vote,” Sidibe’s text message conversation with an uninformed friend is brought to life with the best selection of memes and GIFs.

When Sidibe’s friend doesn’t recognize Tim Kaine in their text exchanges, Sidibe schools her on the importance of being informed and making your voice heard.

“Apathy is not an option,” says Sidibe. “Get informed; get a friend; and go to iwillvote.com.”

Well, what are you waiting for?
