Richard Branson, Olivia Wilde and Bono are the most recent celebrities to publicly declare their support for Matt Damon's "toilet strike" in a PSA, released Wednesday (May 22).

In doing so, they announced their protest of the global water crisis and pledged "…not to go to the bathroom until everyone in the whole world has access to clean water and sanitation."

On February 12th, Matt Damon held a mock press conference in which he originally announced his "toilet strike."

In the PSA, Branson, Wilde and Bono express their support for the strike, and tell how Damon convinced them to take action. Bono says, "I remember when Matt first brought up the idea. It was a meeting of the Illuminati, actually."

Co-founder of Water.org, Damon makes an appearance in the PSA, inviting all to "Join the millions of famous people who've already joined" his strike at strikewithme.org.
