WATCH NOW: Steve Martin Makes a Wad of Paper (And a Campaign Video for Nebraska's Bob Kerrey)

It seems like stars of all shapes and sizes are getting into the Internet campaign video racket. Last week, of course, we had Samuel L. Jackson's "Wake the Fuck Up" masterpiece in support of President Obama. And now we have Steve Martin stumping for the lower profile Bob Kerrey, who's running for Senate in Nebraska.

Though Martin's new video, which was stumbled upon by The Daily Weekly thanks to Buzzfeed, lacks a banjo or an arrow-through-the-head funnyman hat, it does feature the comedian (and, apparently, home crafts expert) instructing viewers on the intricacies of making a really sweet wad of paper. It's pretty awesome.

Utilizing a piece of paper, a few paperclips, a few brads, a stapler, a stick of gum, a hammer, some other stuff - and, most importantly, a person just off camera holding up low-fi signage - Martin manages to get his message across in typical corny yet endearing fashion.

See for yourself:

As Kerrey writes on his Facebook page: "Steve Martin has been my friend for many years, so I knew of his home crafts expertise. I am pleased that he now wants to share his talents with you along with his endorsement of me for the US Senate."
