Hollywood megastar and snake-punching virtuoso Samuel L. Jackson plays the lead in a new video from The Jewish Council for Education & Research (JCER), a liberal super-PAC. The quasi-ad, which we’ll post here on Thursday, is nearly four minutes long. It is unabashedly pro-Obama. It will be shown exclusively online.
Oh, and it’s titled, “Wake the Fuck Up.”
Jackson, 63, narrates the video in a Seussian fashion, paying homage to the audiobook he recorded for Adam Mansbach’s children’s book sendup Go the Fuck to Sleep. The clip consists primarily of the actor, clad in jeans and a black beret, magically appearing in houses and hurling obscenities and Democratic talking points at unsuspecting white suburbanites.
In one scene, for example, Jackson intones:
Sorry, my friend, but there’s no time to snore.
And 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.
And he’s against safety nets, if you fall, tough luck.
So I strongly suggest that you wake the fuck up.
