I saw a new McCain ad discussed this morning on MSNBC. It attempts to disparage Obama as a celebrity who is not ready to lead. However, I happen to think it’s a brilliant pro-Obama ad. (Video below.)
I don’t know who produced the ad, but they either seem unaware that visuals are always more important on television than the substance of words, or they are secretely working for the Obama campaign. Despite the relatively weak negative attacks from the voiceover, the visuals themselves are almost all great shots of Obama speaking to a throng of Germans and American ex-pats in Berlin, in full color, with the sound of people chanting “Obama! Obama!” in the background. Even the shot of Obama toward the end is in color, with the Democratic candidate looking rather photogenic. Cut to final shot of McCain looking nice and ancient.
Good job, Team McCain!
