Jason Momoa shaved off his beard to bring attention to plastics killing the planet

If Jason Momoa wanted our attention there’s like, a number of ways he could’ve gone about it. Dancing in a tank top comes to mind, but instead, he chose to shave off his ridiculously sexy beard all in the name of reminding us how douchey it is to skip on recycling.

We brought this on ourselves, human race. We reap what we sow.

Momoa documented the whole sad goodbye to his extremely famous (and super attractive) facial hair on his YouTube channel.

“Goodbye DROGO, AQUAMAN, DECLAN, BABA! I’m shaving this beast off, it’s time to make a change. A change for the better…for my kids, for your kids, the world. Let’s make a positive change for the health of our planet. Let’s clean up our oceans and our land. Join me on this journey. Let’s make a switch to INFINITELY RECYCLABLE aluminum. Water in cans, NOT plastic,” he writes.

Ugh. Fine, Jason. If you say so.

He starts things off by noting that he hasn’t shaved his beard since 2012. So much history contained in that face fuzz and he’s just gonna let it all go? For shame.

Momoa starts lopping off chunks of beard and tossing it into the wind as he shouts out the names of characters he’s played while bearded. I’m tearing up a little TBH. Also? A bunch of birds are about to make some very sexy and sturdy nests.

“I just wanna do this to bring awareness that plastics are killing our planet — and I think I have a solution,” he says while the clipper buzzes along removing everything we love and believe in. “I don’t wanna bitch about it. There’s only one thing that can really help our planet and save our planet as long as we recycle. And that’s aluminum.”

WE’RE LISTENING DROGO JUST STOP SHAVING PLEASE. This is starting to feel personal.

He goes on to explain all the reasons aluminum is the answer and we’re listening through our tears but honestly, he makes some great points. Aluminum is apparently “infinitely recyclable” and that’s a nice mantra to keep repeating along with “beards can grow back.”

Look at how disappointed he is in us. We’ve made Jason Momoa sad and lost our beard privileges. I’m never touching a plastic bottle again so I guess his campaign was a very successful one.

Of course, people had feelings about Momoa’s little face hair funeral.

Fortunately, along with getting the aluminum message loud and clear, we also learned that beardless Khal Drogo is 100 percent nothing to sneeze at.

Like, we can completely work with this look.

And maybe if we get better at taking care of the planet Aquaman will return to us in his original, hairy, glorious form. But until then, we will just have to get used to bare-faced Momoa.

I think we’ll be ok.
