This is pretty good
Guy’s too busy reading screenplays and making movies, etc., and needs to spend more time prostrate before the actual nasty swamis of politics and sellouts of policy before he goes pontificating on camera like that.
What in hell does he think he’s doing pretending that he knows or cares about, for example, veterans affairs and the reasons why Webb’s bill was a cheap chickenshit election-year ploy?
Hugo- Calm down.
I thought this one was also particularly effective (and, for Hugo’s sake, doesn’t involve any immediately recognizable celebrities).
Huh, embedding doesn’t seem to work….here’s the URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sq30lapbC9c
It’s cute, but too wordy and fast (reminiscent of the Micro Machines speed-talker).
If they could cut out half of the text I might feel less like I’m being hustled at Three card Monte in the subway (Where’stheluckyladyWhere’stheluckylady… Pop quiz!)
Thanks for the link Captison; the Not Alex video was much more powerful. “100 years” is just a big, meaningless number. Putting a face on the issue (and what a cute face) makes it so much more real.
I’m curious about who pays attention to Move On anymore. They seem to have gone so hard-core liberal that it’s hard for non-hard-core liberals to take them seriously.
MoveOn claims 3.2 million members. Even allowing for artful exaggeration on their part MR, I would say that’s major mailing list with a significant chunk of folks paying attention. Probably comes close to balancing the hard core folks who still pay attention (as in believe) in President Cheney.
The “Alex” ad is supposedly testing extremely well; it’s getting viewers’ attention
The issue for vote swingers and those who would influence choices in this election will not be preaching to the choir. The real deal is to get out and open up some closed minds.
zak — I’m glad to hear it, the only improvement I could suggest for “Not Alex” would be a moment of silence before MoveOn launches into their, “over 3 million people…” spiel. I found that what she’s saying just starts to hit you and then you’re jarred out of it by the jargon at the end.
I’m glad that people are responding to it, maybe it’ll make some rethink hard-line party voting.
