Samuel L. Jackson's new political ad: 'Wake the bleep up, vote for Obama'

They picked the perfect actor for a political ad loaded with f-bombs, The Post reports.

Samuel L. Jackson will film a provocative spot supporting President Obama’s re-election bid as early as tomorrow — telling voters to “Wake the f--k up, Vote for Obama.”

The ad is a riff on Jackson’s viral video “Go the F--k to Sleep,” where he narrates a children’s book written by Adam Mansbach.

It’s paid for by the Jewish Council for Education and Research Super PAC — which earlier this summer aired an ad of comedian Sarah Silverman offering “free lesbian sex” to billionaire Sheldon Adelson if he stopped supporting GOP nominee Mitt Romney.

“It’s definitely going to get attention,” said Mansbach, who is writing the script for Jackson’s ad and said it would appear on YouTube on Sept. 24.
