Jeff Goodby Wants to Help the Kids of Tomorrow, Encourages Voting for Obama via Song

Though a registered, albeit “lapsed” Republican, Jeff Goodby is letting the world know where his allegiances lie this election year and is doing so via  a web film/song. The passion project, which was penned by Goodby and art directed by his GS&P partner-in-crime Rich Silverstein, lets a chorus of kids paint a rather drab portrait of the future, one that’s a result of their parents not voting for Obama. Here’s the intro verse that gives you a pretty good idea of where this tune is headed:

“Imagine an America
Where strip mines are fun and free
Where gays can be fixed
And sick people just die
And oil fills the sea”

The black & white motif surely aids the bleak imagery in this clip, which is not an official GS&P product, but one that pulls no punches in conveying whom Goodby’s vote is going to next week.
