Samuel L. Jackson To Voters: “Wake The F**k Up”

Playing off his audio recording of the mock children’s book gone viral “Go The F**K To Sleep,” Samuel L. Jackson has recorded a profanity laced pro-Obama ad:

(CNN) - Actor Samuel L. Jackson entered the political fray this week, starring in a new web video that parodies his own audio recording of the mock children’s book, “Go the F*** to Sleep.”

This time, however, Jackson is reaching out to voters-not frustrated parents-urging Americans to “Wake the F*** Up” and vote for President Barack Obama. (Obviously, not work safe without headphones, but there’s also a bleeped version.)


Funding for the project came from the Jewish Council for Education and Research, a super PAC supporting President Barack Obama. The group has made other humor-based videos, including a video last week on Voter ID laws that featured a brash performance by comedian Sarah Silverman.

Here’s the video, as noted it is complete not safe for work:

    That might be a typo, because it didn’t lack any profanity.

In all seriousness, they are laying FO cable… I have not yet been able to ascertain its purpose.
