Buffy the Vampire Slayer creator Joss Whedon has called his army of fans into action with a funny joke that utilizes the art of reverse psychology (sorry, did I spoil it?) to see Mike Birbiglia and Ira Glass’s movie Sleepwalk With Me. To break it down for you, Sleepwalk With Me is opening in around 80 theaters nationwide while The Avengers (which Whedon wrote and directed) is open in around 500. The only logical course of action Whedon believes in? Boycotting Sleepwalk With Me which will slowly “creep up on us” in numbers, says Whedon.
So, check out Whedon’s request, and go to any of these theaters with picket signs to boycott Sleepwalk With Me.
