Spike Lee in “Wake Up” ad for Bernie Sanders

*A day before the all-important Democratic primary in New York, Spike Lee has released a new celeb-packed ad for his candidate of choice and fellow Brooklynite, Sen. Bernie Sanders.

Titled  “Wake Up,” the ad borrows its title from the message literally yelled to the audience in Lee’s 1988 film “School Daze.” The clip, lasting just over five minutes, features prominent Sanders supporters like Harry Belafonte, Rosario Dawson, Susan Sarandon, Alan Cumming, Dr. Cornel West, and actress Tessa Thompson, as well as black and Latino activists.

Some address the camera directly with their thoughts on why Sanders should be president, while others state their opinions in a gymnasium full of supporters feeling the Bern .

Their quotes are edited together with one of Sanders’ stump speeches that was delivered in the Bronx.
