Robert Downey Jr. Vote PAC

Election Day is here and if you needed an extra reminder as to why you should vote, Joss Whedon has you covered. A new Save the Day PAC video brings the campaign full circle with Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, James Franco, Julianne Moore, and more, giving one last push to encourage millennials to go out and make their mark in this election.

“When are you going? Are you going before work, after? Do you have a plan? Do you have a ride?” Johansson eagerly asks. Keegan-Michael Key adds, “If you know someone who needs a ride, or a kick in the ass, get them there.”

The actors then go on to tell viewers that no one can stop you from casting your vote and explain that “elections aren’t decided by a majority. They’re decided by a majority of those who show up and vote.” Check out the video below.

The video specifically targets 18 U.S. Senators who are up for reelection who’ve voted against universal background checks, despite the fact that the vast majority of Americans support background checks.
