Samuel L. Jackson Tells Voters: Wake the F--- Up

The New York Post reports that Samuel L. Jackson is lending both his star power and unrivaled talent for cursing to a new campaign ad for President Obama’s re-election bid.

 Look out Romney, Obama’s got Samuel L. Jackson batting for his team.  

The New York Post reports that Jackson is lending both his star power and his unrivaled talent for cursing to a new campaign ad for President Obama’s re-election bid.

The ad’s tag line? “Wake the f--- up. Vote for Obama.”

The ad is a play on Jackson’s viral narration of the not-so-childlike children’s book Go the F--- to Sleep, written by Adam Mansbach, who also lends his comedic talent to the ad. The ad is scheduled to appear on YouTube on Sept. 24 and was produced by the Jewish Council for Education and Research Super PAC.

“It’s definitely going to get attention,” Mansbach told the Post.
