Americans! Are you still seriously thinking about voting for a politician in November's presidential election? Really? And you're absolutely sure about that, are you? Well, it could be time to think again.

As this US public information film - which comes to us courtesy of Buzzfeed - points out, there are plenty of good, sound reasons why it may well be worth your while to give the nod of approval to a hedgehog instead. Watch and learn, voters!

Of course, this video was produced by the very same people who brought us this recent gem...

But if you prefer to keep your mind on US politics rather than cute animals, you may like to peruse our slideshow of bizarre political ads. Be warned, though: these weren't actually intended to be funny.
