Water, water everywhere and not a drop to drink – or flush.

Olivia Wilde, Bono and Richard Branson are the latest stars to sign on in support of Matt Damon's toilet strike to raise awareness about the global water crisis – in a hilarious PSA.

"We won't go to the bathroom until everyone in the world has access to clean water and sanitation," the trio says.

"I remember when Matt first brought up the idea, it was at a meeting of the illuminati," Bono says.

"Bono was so mad," Wilde chimes in. "Oy! Damon! Who let you into our secret illuminati meeting?"

Once they explain how Damon told them about the water crisis, it's time for the facts.

"780 million people, that's one in nine, lacks access to safe water," Bono says.

Damon co-founded water.org with Gary White to help develop and deliver solutions to the water crisis so that all people have access to safe water and sanitation.

The organization has helped more than 1 million people living in Africa, South Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean.
