LOS ANGELES — Actor Matt Damon recently released a video on behalf of his nonprofit group Water.org, which is aimed at raising awareness about the world water crisis, according to the Huffington Post.

In the video Damon joked with reporters that he will not use the bathroom until the crisis has been solved, noted the article.

"In protest of this global tragedy — until this issue is resolved, until everybody has access to clean water and sanitation — I will not go to the bathroom,” Damon says in the awareness video.

The three minute video is a mock press conference of Damon stating key facts about the water crisis, and also mixes a little humor with the serious situation.

Damon uses his star power to tell "dumbfounded" journalists about World Toilet Day, an event held each November in order to raise awareness for the billions of people without access to toilets, stated the article.
