Matt Damon Claims To Abstain From Toilet Use In Solidarity With Those Without Proper Sanitation

February 22nd, 2013 by  

Matt Damon is holding “it”. You know what I’m talking about. Damon has announced that he will not be going to the bathroom until everyone has access to clean water and proper sanitation.

Check out Damon’s faux press conference below to hear his toilet strike declaration and why he’s doing it. (Spoiler alert: Damon is staying out of the John in solidarity with the 2.5 — maybe 2.6 — billion people who lack access to clean water and toilets.)

No more potty jokes when you hear about imaginative toilets or a Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation contest for reinventing the toilet.
