Actor Sam Elliott lent his voice to a Joe Biden campaign video that aired during the World Series Tuesday and became a Twitter magnet. See the ad, above, and responses to it.

The Elliott video premiered Tuesday during the first game of the Major League Baseball World Series. Over a piano soundtrack of the “Star Spangled Banner,” the actor known for "A Star is Born," "The Big Lebowski" and "Road House" tells viewers that there is no one America.

“No Democratic rivers, no Republican mountains, just this great land and all that’s possible on it with a fresh start,” the actor says. “Cures we can find, futures we can shape, work to reward, dignity to protect.”

Critics and fans of Elliott reacted immediately. Here's a sampling at this hour. Note: Expect to see some profanity.
