Cleary is seen in the video wearing a t-shirt with the same colours of the Aboriginal flag accompanied with the logo: ‘We Support the Uluru Statement’.
The 25-year-old then gives two thumbs up to the camera.

Cleary is the latest high-profile celebrity to support the Yes campaign after John Farnham allowed his hit song ‘You’re the Voice’ to be used in one of its ads.
The ad features a family watching iconic moments in Australian history on TV, such as Cathy Freeman winning gold at the 2000 Olympics.
It marks the first time Farnham has allowed his song to be used for political purposes with the singer steering clear of political and social issues throughout his career.
Other Aussie moments featuring in the two-minute advert with the song as the soundtrack are Kevin Rudd’s Stolen Generation apology, John Howard’s gun reforms after the Port Arthur massacre and the passing of same-sex marriage in 2016.
It also includes the government handing back Uluru to its traditional owners in 1985, Australia’s Americas Cup win in 1983, and the court case led by Eddie Mabo in 1992 that paved the way for Indigenous land rights.
