This is a commercial gone viral from by MoveOn.org, a political action committee supporting Barack Obama. This political advertisement was produced by famous filmmaker Michael Moore, and uses explicit language, not safe for work. It seeks to shock, juxtaposing seemingly serene seniors with rather foul language in the script. The point of the ad seems to be that the only way Mitt Romney can win is by "stealing the election" or "suppressing the vote" without specifics and the actors in the Michael Moore production seem to be threatening to riot or otherwise be violent, or harm Mitt Romney if he is elected. In one explicit and rather bizarre portion, a senior citizen threatens to watch people having sex from heaven if Romney is elected. In the non-partisan 2012 political ads project collection there are approaching a hundred political commercials collected at the time of the posting, and this appears to be the most extreme of the collected advertisements. In one interpretation, it is so extreme that for some it may come across as humor, a form of political satire or performance art.

The MoveOn.org description titles this video "Greatest Generation", and says "They're our grandmothers and grandfathers, great-aunts and uncles, beloved counselors, kindly neighbors. They are the Greatest Generation. "

Produced by Michael Moore
with Daron Murphy & David Ambrose
