Samuel L. Jackson Reads ‘Wake the F*** Up’ to Support Barack Obama

Actor Samuel L. Jackson has recorded Wake the F*** Up, a campaign video for the Jewish Council for Education and Research that parodies his enormously popular audiobook reading of Adam Mansbach‘s Go the F*** to Sleep.

We’ve embedded the video above–what do you think? While the video supports Barack Obama, his campaign did not endorse the video ad.

Yahoo has more about the video: “Adam Mansbach, who wrote the book, also penned the script for the video (set to dramatic, kid-action-filmesque music), which follows a young girl as she goes from room to room of her house, attempting to reenergize her jaded family into taking part in the Obama campaign this time around like they did four years ago. Though Jackson wasn’t signed on to star in the spot when Mansbach wrote the dialogue, he did revise it for the movie star, a task he calls ‘great fun.’” (Via WWLA & Slate)
