U.S. elections is just around the corner and these stars want you to know that your vote counts. Election is scheduled on November 8, 2016.

Led by Joss Whedon, writer-director of Avengers, he assembled the who's who in Hollywood. A-listers such as Robert Downey Jr, Scarlett Johansson, Neil Patrick Harris, and sketch comedy artist Keegan-Michael Key takes part on this new project called "Save the Day".

Save the day is funded by PAC which was founded by Josh Whedon himself. He donated a total of $1 million in helping Hillary Clinton defeat Donald Trump in the presidential elections. Instead of attacking Trump, Whedon created a video to inspire and encourage people to vote for Clinton.

Don Cheadle a.k.a War Machine on Avengers states on the video that "racist abusive coward who could permanently damage the fabric of our society" is not the one we should vote for. He might not have mentioned Donald Trump, but we all know his platforms.

Wheldon mentioned "It's not about attacking because Donny's real good at attacking himself. It's about getting people to vote, because it's frightening the apathy that people are treating the most crucial election of their lifetimes with."

Martin Sheen added, "We cannot pretend both sides are equally unfavorable." He's trying to reiterate how the media perceives Hillary Clinton and its supporters. He even said that they've been engaging "false equivalence" in both parties.

Currently, Josh and his team are trying to make more than 10 videos and wants to finish at least 25 videos before election starts. A spoof of a traditional campaign promos, called "Important," which was launched today is jam-packed with A-listers, the Avengers team make their presence felt, so as Grey's Anatomy's Jesse Williams, Keegan-Michael Key, and Stanley Tucci. The video ranges from a serious monologue to a comic one.
