The PSA is funny, but the message is serious: Celebrities Matt Damon, Shakira, John Legend and Jessica Alba join Queen Rania of Jordan in asking World Cup fans to sign up at join1goal.org to call on world leaders to make education for the 72 million children out of school the lasting legacy of this World Cup.
Education beats poverty and gives people the tools to help themselves.
