“Avengers” director and “Buffy” creator Joss Whedon has launched Save the Day, a pro-Hillary Clinton Super PAC that’s encouraging people to vote and have their voices heard. In order to reach the most people, he and his organization will produce a series of comedy videos featuring famous Hollywood actors that persuades people to head to the ballot box as well as make them laugh. Watch the first video, “Important,” below, which features Scarlett Johansson, Robert Downey Jr., Mark Ruffalo, Martin Sheen, Don Cheadle, Julianne Moore, James Franco, Keegan-Michael Key, and more.

“It’s not about attacking because Donny’s real good at attacking himself,” says Whedon to The Hollywood Reporter. “It’s about getting people to vote, because it’s frightening the apathy that people are treating the most crucial election of their lifetimes with.”

Though Whedon admits that few people care about the opinions of actors, it’s less about their opinions and more about getting people to actually watch the video. “Seeing somebody famous makes people stop,” Whedon continues. “Seeing something funny makes people stop. Seeing something with emotion makes people stop. Those are the ways you can get to people.”

Good video, but Nathan Fillion is Canadian.

    He became an American citizen a couple of years ago, I think.

Anyone who wasn’t going to vote before, but will now for Hillary because of Joss’s video is hopelessly un/under informed. For those in that category: Choose two political issues important to you. Read the positions of each candidate and pick the one that shares your view. Next, think of two qualities you think a President should have, then choose the candidate that best embodies those characteristics. If you get the same candidate, that’s your vote. If not, you have to prioritize or synthesize other issues into the analysis. Don’t be afraid to do some research and reading. Voting for a candidate because its cool or vogue can be misleading or even contrary to what you think is important. This is an important election, but not just for President. There are a lot of down ballot races that are just as important. You owe to yourself and the country to be an informed voter. Don’t take Joss’s word for it. He makes money creating make-believe entertainment, which is awesome, but not necessarily someone I am going to rely on for political pointers. Look towards those that spend more time or make their living in politics for direction.

Never Hillary

If Whedon thanks his age of Ultron was a failure it is nothing compared to this. I know a whole lot of never Hillary people out here that go see your movies or should I say marvels movies religiously and repeatedly. Practice some business savvy and keep politics out of entertainment. Otherwise you’ll take all of the entertainment out of entertainment not to mention the funding via ticket sales that keeps you guys in business.

They say nothing about alternatives to the criminal party they are now shilling for. That makes them part of the problem, not the solution. They do the same fearmongering every 4 years, and do nothing to build a moral alternative, one that doesn’t use proxy terrorists to destabilize and destroy other nations such as Libya, Syria, and of course Iraq–which Hillary Clinton voted for after selling “WMD” lies. They seem ignorant of what their own regime, the Obama regime, does around the world. They don’t care. They repeat the official lies and point the finger at the other party. It’s delusional propaganda at this point, contemptible.

Hillary Clinton already threatened nuclear attacks on Iran. Hillary Clinton green lit weapons transfers covertly to Syrian terrorists. Then they cry over the refugees they created. It’s an empire, an immoral empire. So stand with Henry Kissinger and Robert Kagan and the neocon psychopaths? That’s who supports Hillary R. Clinton. And some actors.
