Jack Antonoff of the band Fun has
recorded a video for the Human Rights Campaign's (HRC) Americans for
Marriage Equality campaign.
“Touring around the country, my
bandmates and I are completely blown away by the love and support we
get from our fans and it's completely insane to us that some of them
aren't afforded the same rights simply because they're gay or
lesbian,” Antonoff says in the 30-second spot released Wednesday.

Fun released their debut album Aim
and Ignite in 2009 and their follow up Some Nights in
February. The band is best known for the hit single We Are Young
featuring Janelle Monae.
