Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom have gone to extreme lengths to protest against the American voting system.

In a video released today, the couple appear on screen in their seventies looking bedraggled in a bunker in a post-apocalyptic world where 'democracy is dead'.

Looking unrecognisable to their usual glam selves the pair broadcast the 'transmission from the future', supposed to be set in 2055, calling on Americans to call their senators in support of their voting rights.

The political organisation RepresentUs released the ad with the couple in support of the For The People Act, a voting rights bill that is set to be presented to the American Senate next week.

An elderly Orlando can be seen in the ad rasping: “You are our only hope. The America you know doesn’t exist in our future. Democracy is dead.”

Katy, meanwhile, sporting straggly grey hair and a face full of dirt, cuts in and says: “It started when voter suppression ran wild all over America. The voting rights bills died in the Senate. Polling places closed. We lost our right to vote."

Ratcheting up the drama as members of the future government supposedly find the pair in their apocalyptic bunker, Orlando concludes: "This future doesn't have to be. You have the power to change it. Save democracy while you can.

"Call your senator now," an hysterical Katy screams before running off, as Bloom dramatic parting shot is: "Tell Daisy we love her" – referencing the pair's now-nine-month-old daughter, Daisy Dove.
