Joss Whedon hopes the prospect of a Mark Ruffalo nude scene will get people fired up about voting in November. The Hollywood Reporter reports the Avengers director and Buffy the Vampire Slayer creator took a break from movie-making to launch the pro-Hillary Clinton super PAC Save the Day, returning Wednesday with the first result of that project: a star-studded video to get out the vote. True to Whedon form, the video—featuring Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Stanley Tucci, Neil Patrick Harris, Julianne Moore, Don Cheadle, and many, many more—pokes fun at the very idea of a star-studded video to get out the vote, according to the Los Angeles Times.

But despite its humor, the video—which indeed promises a naked Ruffalo—aims to make an important point: "It’s frightening the apathy that people are treating the most crucial election of their lifetimes with," Whedon tells the Hollywood Reporter. Save the Day plans to release up to 25 videos before the election. (More Joss Whedon stories.)
