What do you get when you put together the King of Crunk...

Rock The Vote.

Rock The Vote gives us the answer in its latest video promoting young voter turnout — a deft remake of Lil Jon and DJ Snake's viral hit "Turn Down For What" appropriately titled "Turn Out For What."

The video features Dunham, Jon and other celebrities, including Orange Is The New Black's Natasha Lyonne and Glee's Darren Criss, revealing the causes that bring them to the polls, including gun control, reproductive rights, and student loans.

"We hope that the video will connect the dots between caring about an issue and turning out to make a difference — even in a year where the president isn't on the ballot," said Rock The Vote Spokesperson Audrey Gelman in an email to BuzzFeed News.

Given the soundtrack, though, there's mostly a lot of dancing. Like Fred Armisen's sitting shoulder slide.
