'Buffy' creator Joss Whedon, on Mitt Romney
Article originally posted at Mashable.com
Joss Whedon, creator of such beloved shows as Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Firefly, is urging voters to pick Mitt Romney over Barack Obama — if they want to unleash the zombie apocalypse, that is.
“You know, like a lot of liberal Americans, I was excited when Barack Obama took office four years ago,” says Whedon in a new YouTube video. “But it’s a very different world now. And 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 the zombie apocalypse.”
The clearly satirical video is actually a pro-Barack Obama ad — Whedon’s just using the zombie apocalypse scenario as hyperbole to emphasize the parts of the Romney agenda with which he disagrees.
Politics aside, we think this is one of the most original politics ads we’ve seen this US election season.
