He’s scheduled to begin filming the ad, “Wake the F–k Up, Vote for Obama,” in support of the president’s run for re-election as early as tomorrow.
The ad was inspired by the Shaft actor’s viral video “Go The F–k to Sleep,” where he narrates a “children’s book for adults” written by author Adam Mansbach. According to theNew York Post, Mansbach, the writer behind the ad says“It’s definitely going to get attention.”
Jackson, who holds the Guinness World Record as the highest grossing actor of all-time, is the perfect pick for this role which will hopefully encourage people to head to the polls this November.
Look out for the ad to debut on YouTube on September 24–we know we sure will!
