Jack backs Clinton

Barack Obama might enjoy the support of stars Robert De Niro, Scarlett Johansson and George Clooney, but film favourite Jack Nicholson decided to side with Hillary Clinton in a video clip, helping to pull the “doomed” democrat candidate out of what seemed like a political grave only last week. Clinton’s wins in Ohio and Texas come after 11 consecutive defeats, and an endorsement video from Nicholson.

"Sorry Jack. Vote Obama"

Although Obama's team were lacking in response, his fans didn't take long to comeback. Taking less positive clips from the same films, they turned the video on its head, ending with "Sorry Jack. Vote Obama".

"There is nothing on this earth sexier, believe me gentlemen, than a woman you have to salute in the morning"

Jack Nicholson said that a friend put the video together after the Clinton campaign made a direct request for help. The clip includes shots of Nicholson from various blockbusters such as "Batman" "The Shining" and "A Few Good Men", and has been viewed over 1.8 million times on YouTube. Nicholson comes after Eva Longoria Parker and Melanie Griffiths in Hillary's fan club.
