“People feel like they have given up on the system, and that's exactly what the bad guys want us to do, they want us to give up on the system,” the Oscar-nominated actor says.

Mark Ruffalo, a staunch supporter of Bernie Sanders, stars in a new video released Monday in which he says the Vermont senator is campaigning to be president during a “crisis of credibility in the American political system.” 

Joined by director Matthew Cooke, Ruffalo reiterates how important he believes Sanders is to the future of the U.S. The video is a paid ad by the Sanders campaign. 

“People feel like they have given up on the system, and that's exactly what the bad guys want us to do, they want us to give up on the system,” the Oscar-nominated actor says. 

The video is almost four minutes in length and features both men addressing the camera among spliced footage of Sanders rallies and interviews. 

"Bernie Sanders' campaign has sparked a fire," says Cooke. 

Ruffalo contends the large following Sanders has gathered is not so much a revolution as it is "re-love-lution."

"This is the future of the Democratic Party," Ruffalo tells Cooke. "We want to take care of each other."
