With the message that"voting is a necessary and heroic act," Joss Whedon's Save the Day campaign is calling on pop culture nerds and summer blockbuster-lovers alike to unite against"racist, abusive coward" Donald Trump.

Everyone is stressing we need to vote. The problem is no one with common sense is seriously found of either candidate. Either way this country will be forever changed on the morning of Nov. 5.

If you’re the sort of American citizen who’s excited to wake up to a new wry, erudite titbit from the brain of Joss Whedon starring Martin Sheen and James Franco, then I’ll wager that it had already crossed your mind to register for a vote on November 6th anyway.

I don't need this video to know not to vote for Trump. But great work anyway.

It still amazes how many people put out just distasteful work about him. If they did that Hillary they would be shut down. This is not a fair even race by a long shot.

The other thing I must say is that I don't get my heros from people who play fake characters on TV. I do not care about a bunch of highly paid actors who do whatever they are told for money. This did the opposite for me and makes me want to vote for Trump.

Save the Day's heartfelt yet humorous video is packed with celebs, because as Julianne Moore says in the spot, it will take"just a sh*t ton of famous people" to get many apathetic voters' attention.

Everyone is looking for their chance to take a shot at Trump. Sometimes they go to far. At least we know who in hollywood can't be trusted now.

Do we really want to give nuclear weapons to a man whose signature move is firing things?” we’re reminded by Leslie Odom Jr., Julianne Moore, Neil Patrick Harris, and Scarlett Johansson in the video. Needless to say, we know exactly who these celebrities won’t be voting for! Make sure you head over to Save The Day to register to vote in your state so that you can have your voice heard!

The video is a deconstruction of the banality of celebrity-laden PSAs, and as a result is far more effective than its less self-aware predecessors. It’s, The Cabin in the Woods as a PSA.
