Joss Whedon for Romney?


A still from Whedon’s video

Joss Whedon, the 48-year-old creator of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and writer of “The Avengers,” just released a campaign video in support of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney. This may seem odd given Whedon’s past support for Barack Obama, but there is a method to his madness.

The video that hit YouTube Sunday is an obvious parody that encourages voters to choose Romney because he is most likely to bring about a zombie apocalypse. Check out this excerpt:

“Mitt Romney is a very different candidate, one with the vision and determination to cut through business as usual politics and finally put this country back on the path to zombie apocalypse. Romney is ready to make the deep rollbacks to health care, education, social services, and reproductive rights that will guarantee poverty, unemployment, overpopulation, disease, rioting — all crucial elements in creating a nightmare zombie wasteland. But it’s his commitment to ungoverned corporate privilege that will nosedive this economy into true insolvency and chaos. The kind of chaos you can’t buy back: Money is only so much paper to the undead. The 1 percent will no longer be the very rich — it will be the very fast.”

If you haven’t done so already, I highly recommend that you take a look. Whedon’s talents obviously extend beyond the Big Screen, and Obama supporters are sure to love it.

I know I do. Nice work, Joss!

    Being a zombie is the natural stage of lawyers & doctors
    whom working in the private sector // they having thrived,
    thus the fear of being becoming an zombie is unjustified.

    If one is a zombie then its time to come out of the closet
    just be youself & enjoy life / meet other zombies & party.
