Who said great art can't be a sing-songy rhyme?

The award-winning director of Boyhood and a bunch of other movies that make you cry recently produced an ad to help fight his home state's proposed anti-transgender bathroom initiative, SB6. 

Titled "I Pee with LGBT,' the ad features a Texas utopia where people get to the use bathroom of their choice, free of harassment and discrimination. The current bill would require transgender people to use the bathroom that corresponds with their sex assigned at birth.

The ad is great, and thankfully doesn't include either Ethan Hawke or Julie Deply crying.
