With a week left until Election Day, the PSAs reminding people to vote continue to roll in. Joss Whedon has released a new video from his Save the Day series titled “Leonard.”

Starring Chris Pine, the actor stars as Leonard, “the human embodiment of today’s United States Congress – he’s dysfunctional, inappropriate, and if he was your employee, you’d fire him,” states the video’s description.

“I will say at first, that we had such high hopes for Leonard,” says Alan Tudyk’s character in the clip. “But then right away, there were…issues.”

The clip shows Leonard being disruptive, childish and overall an inconvenience to the company. He’s also seen chasing a female employee yelling, “I’m the boss of you! I’m the boss of your whole body!,” with the PSA explaining, “No employee would get away with this. Why has Congress?”

J. August Richards Jillian Morgese, Romy Rosemont, Josh Zar, Zac Oyama, and David Fury are also featured in the clip.
