Beloved filmmaker and TV series creator Joss Whedon took some time out to deliver a humorous political message in anticipation of the Presidential election. Those familiar with his pre-Avengers work, which includes creating television's Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Dollhouse, Firefly and Angel know that Whedon has both an appreciation for supernatural, sci-fi and horror, and a certain flair and finesse for metaphor. He applies both of those things with this video, which features Whedon himself warning fans of the impending zombie apocalypse, should Romney take office.
This doesn't appear to be an official Obama endorsed ad (as was the case for the recently released Lena Dunham spot), and nowhere in the Whedon's video does he outright encourage people to vote for Obama, though a link to Obama's official website is tucked away in the caption of the video on Youtube:
So while the video seems more anti-Romney than it is Pro-Obama as far as the message goes, the support for Obama is more or less implied.
In the end, I'd like to believe that the true message is embedded somewhere deep among the Spam and other canned goods: Whedon for president in 2016!
