Keegan-Michael Key gives an alarming forecast in new election video

Posted on

The forecast is cloudy with a chance of doomsday in the latest video from Joss Whedon and Save the Day, the writer-director’s recently launched super PAC looking to mobilize young voters in the 2016 election.

Starring Key and Peele co-creator Keegan-Michael Key as a glib TV meteorologist, the video finds him predicting severe conditions in the wake of a hypothetical Donald Trump victory in November.

“We’re seeing a heavy wave of denial coming in from both coasts, trapping a high-blood-pressure front right in the heart of the country,” Key’s weatherman says. “Now down South, that’s going to push civil unrest back to the mid to early ’60s.”

He goes on to dispassionately warn of financial ruin, existential misery, and nuclear winter.

Key is the latest celebrity enlisted by Whedon in his effort to keep Trump out of the White House. His PAC’s first video, released last month, featured Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Don Cheadle, Julianne Moore, and more.
