Matt Damon’s “toilet strike” for water.org is claiming more and more celebrities in an Oprah-like sweep: Now Bono won’t use the bathroom! And Olivia Wilde! And British mogul Richard Branson! Like Damon, the trio has pledged “not to go to the bathroom until everyone in the whole world has access to clean water and sanitation.” Damon kickstarted the strike in February; Jessica Biel, Jason Bateman, and Josh Gad joined him in March. The movement protests the plight of the 780 million people who lack access to safe drinking water and the 2.5 billion people who go without safe water and sanitation facilities.
“I want to support creative organizations that truly impact the lives of those in need, particularly those living in extreme poverty,” Wilde said in a statement. “Water.org makes a real difference around the world, and in Haiti, a country that I care deeply about.” In the adjoining, just-released PSA, Bono, Wilde, and Branson pledge their support – as well as when they first heard about Damon’s plan. (Spoiler: It was at an Illuminati meeting.) As Bono puts it: “This is one conspiracy we can all agree on.”
