Could It Really Be This Simple to Get Mark Ruffalo Totally Naked?

A star-studded new super PAC video slams Trump.

A “shit ton” of celebrities just made a video for Save the Day, part of a new campaign to get people to the ballot boxes on election day this November.

The parody of a classic public service announcement was posted to YouTube on Wednesday and was paid for by a new super PAC headed by Joss Whedon, creator of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and recent director of the Avengers.

The actors—including Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, and Don Cheadle—give some pretty compelling reasons to register to vote on November 8, especially making sure a certain presidential candidate doesn’t get into office: “You can only get this many famous people together if the issue is one that truly matters to all of us, like… a racist, abusive coward who could permanently damage the fabric of our society.”

Oh, and Mark Ruffalo: Don’t promise what you can’t deliver. Watch it above.

It sure feels that way to me, and here at Mother Jones, we’ve been thinking a lot about what journalism needs to do differently, and how we can have the biggest impact.

We kept coming back to one word: corruption. Democracy and the rule of law being undermined by those with wealth and power for their own gain. So we're launching an ambitious Mother Jones Corruption Project to do deep, time-intensive reporting on systemic corruption, and asking the MoJo community to help crowdfund it.

We aim to hire, build a team, and give them the time and space needed to understand how we got here and how we might get out. We want to dig into the forces and decisions that have allowed massive conflicts of interest, influence peddling, and win-at-all-costs politics to flourish.

It's unlike anything we've done, and we have seed funding to get started, but we're looking to raise $500,000 from readers by July when we'll be making key budgeting decisions—and the more resources we have by then, the deeper we can dig. If our plan sounds good to you, please help kickstart it with a tax-deductible donation today.

Thanks for reading—whether or not you can pitch in today, or ever, I'm glad you're with us.
