Samuel L. Jackson admonishes apathetic voters for this year's presidential election, reminding them what the stakes are. via Mother Jones:

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 F**k 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 f**k up.

The civically engaged actor promptly rematerializes to shout at the disaffected teens who organized bake sales to support of Obama's 2008 bid but have since lost interest:

STOP BULLSHITTIN'. GET OUT THERE AND SELL SOME CAKES AND COOKIES. NOOOWWWW!!!
