On October 28th, 2012, critically acclaimed, Hollywood director, Joss Whedon published the “Whedon on Romney” Youtube video seen below.
With already more than 6 million views before Tuesday’s upcoming election, it’s fairly safe to say Whedon’s satirical video has made its rounds across the World Wide Web. According to YouTube’s wonderfully helpful Statistics feature, the video’s primary demographics were men and women aged 45 to 54 years old. This election will be one of the most expensive elections ever embarked on and with silly videos like this zombie-themed-one, we can all laugh a little while also shuddering at the concept of a possible doomsday scenario. Whedon’s Halloween gift to the Internet community cleverly allows him the opportunity to present his political opinions in the fairly unsurprising way the mind behind Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly, and the Avengers most likely would!
Either way, be ready to be hit by the last barrage of mail, commercials, and social media updates about the upcoming election on Tuesday! Make sure to vote and seek out the necessary background information on all the local and state level candidates not just the few presidential ones!
