Samuel L. Jackson has added to the noise of election 2012 with a new ad supporting President Barack Obama. The legendary actor is part of an ad in which he reads a children's book urging Americans to re-elect Obama … or rather wake the f*ck up and re-elect Obama.
As you can surmise, there is massive amounts of profanity laced into the political message.
Wake the F*ck Up features Jackson and a little girl urging the rest of her family to vote for Obama. The ad is produced by a liberal super PAC supporting Obama:
Here’s a snippet (NSFW, btw):
“An out-of-touch millionaire has 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, then tough luck. So I strongly suggest that you wake the f*ck up.”
Wake the F*ck Up was written by Adam Mansbach, author of the children's book Go the F*ck to Sleep (which Jackson also read aloud at one point).
Funding for the eloquent and persuading project came from the Jewish Council for Education and Research, a Super PAC supporting Obama. The group has made other humor-based videos, including a video last week on Voter ID laws that featured a brash performance by comedian Sarah Silverman (also seen below … NSFW).
Here are the big take-aways from Wake the f*ck Up:
+ "A vote for Mitt Romney is a vote to have Planned Parenthood cut. Listen to your little sister. WAKE THE F*** UP!"
+ "How about that student-loan overhaul? It’s going to save you thousands of bucks. Mitt’s gonna cut that s*** in a second. WAKE THE F*** UP!"
+ "Sorry my friend, but there’s no time to snore, the out-of-touch millionaires just declared war; on schools, the environment, unions, fair pay. We’re all on our own if Romney has his way. He’s against safety nets. If you fall, tough luck. So I strongly suggest you WAKE THE F*** UP!"
+ "Hell no, it can’t wait. Your lives will be affected. Romney and Ryan will gut Medicare if they’re elected. Ask the fact checkers. Those two are fact duckers … SAY HELL NO, MOTHERF***ERS!"
