No, not that one. Though this is just as effective a way to get their point across.

Today, released a star-studded (and how!) PSA to bring attention to the drought-induced famine (that's the f-word) happening in Somalia. And if you think showing a video of celebrities getting bleeped out is attention-grabbing or offensive—well, that's sort of the point.

"I've been known to drop the occasional expletive, but the most offensive F-word to me is not the one that goes f--k," Bono said. "It's f----e—the famine."

In addition to Bono, the PSA, titled "The F Word: Famine is the Real Obscenity," features effin' appearances by George Clooney, Jessica Alba, Clive Owen, Colin Farrell, Annie Lennox, Ewan McGregor, Rob Lowe, Justin Long, Joe Jonas, Christy Turlington, Evan Rachel Wood, Kristin Davis and more mouthing off in the name of charity.

The stars are asking people to sign their petition imploring Congress to fully fund the Feed the Future program to help put an end to the tragedy.
