Brad Pitt calls Joe Biden 'a president for all Americans' in World Series campaign ad

Hollywood heavyweight Brad Pitt threw his support behind Joe Biden by narrating a campaign ad that paints the Democrat as the unifying force America needs.  

The 60-second spot, titled 'Make Life Better', aired on Saturday night during Game 4 of the MLB World Series between the Los Angeles Dodgers and Tampa Bay Rays.

'America is a place for everyone,' Pitt says over heartwarming footage of Biden greeting voters of all ages with hugs, handshakes and high-fives before the pandemic and fully masked after it struck. 

 'Those who chose this country, those who fought for it, some Republicans, some Democrats, and most just somewhere in between.'

Pitt goes on to say that all Americans are 'looking for the same thing: Someone who understands their hopes, their dreams, their pain. 

'To listen, to bring people together, to get up every day and work to make life better for families like yours. 

'To look you in the eye, to treat you with respect, to tell you the truth. 

'To work just as hard for the people who voted for him as those who didn't. 

'To be a president for all Americans.'

The video ends with a clip of Biden and his wife Jill walking across a stage as the 'Biden Harris' logo flashes on the screen and the nominee says: 'I approve this message.'

While Pitt himself isn't in the video, his voice is unmistakable from decades on the silver screen. 

The 56-year-old isn't as outspoken about his politics as some in his Hollywood cohort, but did visit the White House when Biden was vice president in 2012. 

Pitt has shared liberal views on a few occasions - including at the 2019 Oscars when he referenced the Trump impeachment trial in his acceptance speech for Best Actor. 

He also poked fun at Trump over the summer when he played Dr Anthony Fauci on Saturday Night Live.

Biden's campaign didn't disclose how much it shelled out for the ad and its primetime spot during the World Series. 

CNN reported that the ad buy during last week's World Series game was estimated at $4million - only slightly less than what the campaign spent on advertising in the battleground state of Iowa this fall. 

The Pitt ad was the latest in a series placed by the Biden campaign in each World Series game, including one narrated by actor Sam Elliott. 

The campaign has also snapped up ad slots in several other coveted programs, including five NFL games.  

Biden's team raked in a record $383million in donations in September, bankrolling its advertising spending spree in the final stretch of the election.
