IMO, the appeal is to youth voters and Jackson is playing one of his movie characters.

It explains sh!t for that demographic just like Clinton explained sh!t to older folks.

I found it funny as he[[ and I don't think it will have ANY negative consequences for the campaign.  (I assume that it was done by a PAC or some other independent group OR Comedy Central staff!)

I am hoping that a bunch of folks who are "disillusioned" because the Prez has "not been able to get Repubs to work with him" or Guantanamo is not closed  ::) or some other ridiculous BS will wake TFU and then contribute, work on the campaign and vote.

This funny video won't stop anyone from voting for the Prez and it just might WTFU a few thousand people in swing states.

 :lol:...........yeah, rather agree w/what B66 states here^^^.

I didn't find the video particularly offensive, and it may actually even be helpful to get folks' attention and explain in graphic terms what this presidential election means and why it so important.

Additionally, the expression "WTFU" has become so commonplace and PERVASIVE in the American culture that even to speak the words is not NEARLY as offensive as it was, say, even ten years ago.

I'm sure some parents will "squirm" at the sight of the little girl at the end articulating the same "warning" that Jackson does throughout the piece. But that is really MILD compared to the GARBAGE these kids are exposed to on a daily basis.

Anyway, that's my $0.02.

Leave it to Samuel L. Jackson to keep it real.  In an interview with Ebony Magazine, the actor has no shame in his game that he voted for President Obama because of his race:

“I voted for Barack because he was black,” Jackson revealed. “‘Cuz that’s why other folks vote for other people — because they look like them.”

Jackson then goes on to say:

“That’s American politics, pure and simple.   [Obama’s] message didn’t mean sh*t to me. In the end, he’s a politician. I just hoped he would do some of what he said he was gonna do. I know politicians say sh*t; they lie. ’Cuz they want to get elected.”

AGAIN, I AGREE WHOLEHEARTEDLY WITH THE MESSAGE, JUST NOT THE WAY IT WAS PRESENTED.  WOULD NOT WANT MY 10 AND 8 YEAR OLD GRANDKIDS TO WATCH IT.  WHAT CONCERNS ME IS NOT HOW IT IMPACTS OBAMA SUPPORTERS, BUT OBAMA DETRACTORS.  THE RACE IS STILL NOT WON AND I DO NOT WANT TO GIVE THOSE GOP A--HOLES ANY AMMUNITION TO USE AGAINST THE POTUS.

Devin, thanks!
That really puts it in context, too.

And, Strike, Yes Mrs. Bison66 didn't like the language and especially when repeated by the little girl at the end.  I thought THAT was (style wise) gratuitous, but not a concern for me.
FAN,
How do you "fear" the fRight could exploit this video?
Is it a bigger vulnerability than "god" not being mentioned in the Dem platform?  I ask that to make the point that I don't think the Repubs are making much hay with that one.
