Avengers director/writer Joss Whedon has a pro-Hillary super PAC called Save the Day, and he assembled some of his superhero friends to film the PSA above. The video encourages people to get out and vote on Nov. 8, strongly advising against a certain candidate whose name rhymes with "dump." The name "Donald Trump" is never actually uttered, but Don Cheadle refers to the unnamed candidate as a "racist, abusive coward who could permanently damage the fabric of our society," so it's pretty clear who they're referring to.
What's even more glaringly obvious is that the Save the Day committee has donated $1 million to the Clinton campaign, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Whedon also told THR it's not meant to attack "Donny" Trump so much as it is about "getting people to vote, because it’s frightening the apathy that people are treating the most crucial election of their lifetimes with."
Alongside Cheadle, the super star-studded cast in the PSA video includes Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Robert Downey Jr., Keegan-Michael Key, Neil Patrick Harris, Julianne Moore, James Franco, Taran Killam, Cobie Smulders, and Martin Sheen. When the video starts to get maybe a little too earnest as many celeb testimonies are wont to do, all the stars suddenly chime in to promise that if we vote and Clinton wins the election, Mark Ruffalo will do a nude scene in his next movie. "Mark's gonna have his dick out," says Downey Jr., much to Ruffalo's confusion. "Full Marky," NPH chimes in before Smulders urges, "Make Mark be naked."
That's convincing enough of a reason to get me to vote, honestly.
