Filmmaker Joss Whedon, known for his work on "The Avengers" and "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," has put out a video mocking Republicans' recent charges that the presidential election is "rigged" by one-sided media and possible voter fraud.

The Hollywood director's political action committee, "SAVE THE DAY," put out the video, which stars Anders Holm of "Workaholics" and Minka Kelly of "Friday Night Lights" as government agents tasked with saving the republic from voter fraud.

The joke, however, is that there is no fraud to guard against, according to Whedon. Instead, the agents spend the video trying to decide where to get lunch.

In Whedon's video, the PAC argues that a study found only 31 incidents of in-person voter fraud from 2000-2014 — according to the Washington Post.

But in recent days, Trump has insisted during campaign events that the 2016 presidential election has been "rigged" in favor of his opponent, Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

“Remember, we are competing in a rigged election,” he said in Wisconsin. “They even want to try and rig the election at the polling booths, where so many cities are corrupt and voter fraud is all too common.”
