Joss Whedon came back to Twitter in September with a message: stop Donald Trump. In the last month, he’s called in all the charismatic comedians and actors he knows to participate in videos for his Save the Day super PAC, even promising you’ll see some skin in exchange for voting.


While one of his earlier videos implied there was a terrible, Cheeto-stained monster lurking on the White House lawn, it’s message was mostly, “Vote, for the love of god, vote!” This new short, featuring Keegan-Michael Key as a terrified weatherman, is more direct about the imminent threat of a Trump presidency, saying, “We are seeing a heavy wave of denial coming from both coasts, dropping a high-blood-pressure front right in the center of the country.”

Still, it’s hard to imagine any undecided voters being swayed by the female morning show host crying and getting called “a thoughtless ass” because she voted for Jill Stein, even if some of us enjoy the sentiment. So, in addition to putting out snarky videos, Save the Day is also registering people to vote which is good even if you love Jill Stein.
