Here is old as the earth former Senator Alan Simpson, come to urge you young people to stop tweeting and instagramming your eggs and whatever the hell this is, and use your social media savvy to get lawmakers to take control of the national debt. Sounds completely fool-proof.

The video is to promote The Can Kicks Back's "Three-A-Week Recruitment Challenge." TCKB (abbrevs) is a "non-partisan, Millennial-driven campaign to fix the national debt and reclaim our American Dream." Sure, why not? However, it's unclear how The Can Kicks Back plans to get elected officials to curb the national debt besides, like, wanting it really badly.

So here's to young people, their wide-eyed optimism and their iPhones.
