Keegan-Michael Key Forecasts a Donald Trump Presidency in Joss Whedon’s Video

Joss Whedon’s political action committee Save the Day has released a new video warning of a Donald Trump presidency in which Keegan-Michael Key plays a weatherman giving an apocalyptic vision of the future.

The video, called “Weatherman,” is directed by Whedon and is the latest in a flurry of campaigns featuring celebrities urging younger voters to get out the vote, in some cases with dire warnings about Trump winning the election.

Whedon has donated $275,000 to the PAC, according to the latest records from the Federal Election Commission. It has spent $142,664 in production costs. The goal of the PAC is to boost voter registration, particularly among younger voters.

According to the PAC, Save the Day has so far helped register more than 40,000 voters around the country. Last month, it debuted a video featuring Robert Downey Jr., Martin Sheen, Don Cheadle, and others to get out the vote. The spot, called “Important,” also warned of a Trump presidency, although he was not mentioned by name.

Whedon also waded into the 2012 campaign, creating a video that irreverently warned of the “zombie apocalypse” should Mitt Romney be elected. He told BuzzFeed last month that he planned to spend up to $1 million for the Save the Day effort.
