Grimes shares retro-inspired Hillary Clinton campaign ad

“The stakes are too high for you to stay home.”
Grimes has shared a short video encouraging her fans to get behind Hillary Clinton as polls open in the US election.

The minute-long clip is pretty much a shot-for-shot recreation of an iconic 1964 campaign ad for Lyndon Johnson, which compared the importance of their decision to the risk of nuclear war.

“Vote for Secretary Clinton on November 8th,” she urges at the end, “the stakes are too high for you to stay home.”

You can watch the clip, and the ’64 original, below.
