North America 26 October 2012 Hollywood comes out to bat for Obama: video round-up Sarah Jessica Parker, Lena Dunham, and Lucas Gray have all produced videos in support of the president. Print HTML Under two weeks to go until the US election, and the media world is going headfirst into its support of both candidates. But mainly Obama. Sarah Jessica Parker appeared on Access Hollywood and passionately gave her reasons for supporting Obama (after a detour about her trip to collect Irish groceries which, apparently, are a thing) – and for opposing Romney. Jezebel, who posted the video, sum up her appearance: Romney's flip-flopping, almost accidentally shows her home address on National TV because she's JUST LIKE US, acknowledges that she would be better off financially with Romney as president but she's concerned about equality and women's rights, she won't move to Canada if Romney wins because she will not give up on this country, she is all about women voting, WOMEN VOTE DAMMIT OR SHE WILL COME AFTER YOU. . . SJP for president! OF MY HEART. Elsewhere, animator Lucas Gray, who has previously worked on the Simpsons and Family Guy, wrote and directed a superb three-minute adaptation of one of Obama's speeches into a film called Why Obama Now. It focuses on attacking the concept of "trickle down" economics, and does a remarkably good job. Plus, it has graphs, but doesn't scare people with them: Finally, Lena Dunham, writer, director and star of Sky's Girls, has produced a sweetly funny video about her first time (voting), aimed at people in the same situation this year as she was last election: › The Economist: austerity in 2010 "threatened recovery" The president speaks.
