Been a while since postings, part of that is I've been busy, but also I find it difficult to find something to post about that I'm really interested in. Most of the ads I've seen are pretty standard fair. I like un-standard, that's what I want to write about... ah well. In the interests of posting, some quick thoughts today.
I always find the word "liberal" as a throwback to the 90's when Republicans were using it like a four letter word. I like the graphics of this spot, they're neat in a Matrix kinda way, though not sure if they're adding to the message or just neat. Also, not sure I've ever heard a more cranky/crotchety disclaimer.
Next up, a new Tester ad. I can't tell if I like this ad or not. On one hand it's a clever concept, and they stick with it. On the other, the talking animals are a little... creepy. The first time I watched the spot, I was so caught up in animals talking, I didn't even listen to what they were saying. Also, what format are they shooting on? For a professional ad for a big senate race, the video looks really cheap and crappy I noticed this last time, I reviewed a Tester ad). Still I give them points for trying something different.
