Adam Mansbach, the best-selling author of satirical children's book "Go the F--- to Sleep" and former Rutgers-Camden adjunct, re-teamed with Samuel L. Jackson to stump for Obama in a new video called "Wake the F--- Up."Jackson appears in the video (below) while Mansbach penned the script.

Mansbach and Jackson previously worked together on the audiobook of the "children's book for adults."

"My hopes are that the video helps … remind people of Obama's accomplishments and the stakes of this election, and galvanize people to get out and get active," Mansbach told Yahoo! "Not just to vote, but to volunteer and organize." Mansbach said he didn't write the script for Jackson, but revised it when the actor signed on. Considering Fox 2000 has the film rights (as we told you in a piece on Mansbach from last year), maybe it's time for another team-up on the big screen.
