    you don't flop around meekly and hope it goes away, ... you utterly destroy it at it's core... you know, with facts ... and a clear, confident posture of defiance.

    This Is How You Kill An Attack Ad


    "A campaign ad supported with actual facts that talks to Americans like they're adults? What universe is this from?"

    That ad looks and sounds great, its a crying shame that it just doesn't work.

    I don't think I remember seeing this being done.

    There's no music. There are simple graphics mainly composed of locator maps. There's a campaign worker with the logo everywhere, instead of the usual "I'm a straight-talking actor from central casting."

    I'm kind of wondering whether this is a turn of sorts, or whether it's sort of an inside-the-base ad meant to be spread through the base.

    :confused:

    Probably pretty soon it'll all be big-dollar production values, & this is meant to be the "viral" part of the campaign.

    Still a really interesting concept - go pre-glitz in your production, and call it the "truth squad" or whatever it's called.

    Always fun to watch.
