Joss Whedon "endorses" Mitt Romney to lead country to zombie apocalypse

Joss Whedon has come out in support of Mitt Romney, but it isn't a typical celebrity endorsement.

"The Avengers" director has released a video over the weekend endorsing the Republican presidential nominee as the candidate "with the vision and determination to cut through business-as-usual politics and finally put this country back on the path to the zombie apocalypse."

"Romney is ready to make the deep rollbacks in healthcare, education, social services, reproductive rights that will guarantee poverty, unemployment, overpopulation, disease, rioting -- all crucial elements in creating a nightmare zombie wasteland," Whedon explains in the video. "But it's his commitment to unregulated corporate privilege that will nosedive this economy into true insolvency and chaos."

"Lets all embrace the future," he added. "Stop pretending we care about each other, and start hoarding canned goods. Because if Mitt takes office, sooner or later the zombies will come for all of us."

Whedon, who donated to President Barack Obama's reelection campaign last year, knows a thing or two about the supernatural -- he created the cult-hit TV series "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and its spin-off, "Angel."
