The clip shows a propaganda campaign advertisement featuring Josh Hutcherson’s Peeta Mellark as he stands next to Donald Sutherland’s President Snow while he delivers his message to the capitols.
Clad in all white, President Snow says:
“Ours is an elegant system. We seek to nourish and protect,”
“Your hard work feeds us, and in return, we feed and protect you.”
He also blurts out a threatening message:
“But if you resist the system, you starve yourself. If you fight against it, it is you who will bleed.”
He ends his monologue with:
“Panem today, Panem tomorrow, Panem forever.”
