A week before America goes to the polls, Joss Whedon would like to remind us that there’s strength in numbers.
The Buffy the Vampire Slayer creator’s election-related PSA, released Tuesday, tells the tale of “Leonard,” a terrible blowhard of a businessman — played by Star Trek‘s Chris Pine — whose bratty, entitled behavior and insistence on controlling everything makes life unendurable for his beleaguered office mates.
Whedon standbys Alan Tudyk (Firefly) and J. August Richards (Angel) appear in the video as Leonard’s co-workers, who quickly reach their limit with his antics. (Sample bad behavior: Leonard points to a transgender bathroom and yells, “This frightens and arouses me!”)
“No employee would get away with this,” a message on the screen reads, just after Leonard’s co-workers band together to vote him out. “Why has Congress?”
Whedon’s previous election video, released in September, assembled a bunch of stars to protest Donald Trump, whom they called “a racist, abusive coward who could permanently damage the fabric of our society.” Actors in that clip included Jesse Williams (Grey’s Anatomy), Nathan Fillion (Castle), Bradley Whitford (The West Wing), Neil Patrick Harris and Cobie Smulders (How I Met Your Mother) and Keegan-Michael Key (Key & Peele).
Press PLAY on the video above to watch Pine behave badly.
