Thinking about sitting out this election? Or maybe voting for Romney just for the hell of it? You may want to think twice. If the above video is any indication, Samuel L. Jackson may appear out of nowhere to give you a profanity-laced nursery rhyme about the dangers of voting Republican this November.
Ostensibly a parody of his viral-ready rendition of the children's-book-for-adults "Go The F*ck To Sleep," Jackson magically shows up in the homes of seniors, young people and other disaffected voters to encourage them to start paying attention, using colorful language that, we can only assume, is not approved by Barack Obama.
The Academy Award nominee, 63, comes as a natural and unapologetic surrogate for the Obama campaign. Earlier this year, he caused a stir when he told Ebony that he voted for Obama in 2008 "because he was black."
A sample of Jackson's ad:
“Sorry, my friends, but there’s no time to snore
An out-of-touch millionaire just declared war
On schools, the environment, unions, fair pay
We’re all on our own if Romney has his way
And he’s against safety nets
If you fall, tough luck
So, I strongly suggest that you wake the f*ck up."
The video was sponsored by the Jewish Council on Education and Research Super PAC, which also produced Sarah Silverman's video encouraging Florida seniors to take "the great schlep" to the ballot box.
