"Gossip Girl" costars/real-life sweethearts Blake Lively and Penn Badgley are trying to warn young people everywhere about the consequences if their parents vote for Sen. John McCain and Gov. Sarah Palin.

Yeah, like parents are every gonna listen to their kids ….

In the video, the stars and some other young people talk about voting for McCain as if it were an illegal drug, alcohol or cigarettes, talking about peer pressure and how voting for him "just because other people your age are doing it, doesn’t make it cool."

"Mom, Dad: I found this in your room today," says Badgley, holding up a John McCain cap, like it was an empty beer can or a marijuana joint.

"If you’re ever out somewhere and you’re considering voting McCain, just call me and I’ll pick you up. No questions asked," says Lively.

Out of the mouths of Hollywood babes? Or are these kids misguided and misinformed?

C’mon, I know you have an opinion. You’re parents, for crying out loud!
