This has to be seen to be believed. This is a genuine political advert that is running in the USA.
It is the latest political advert created by Fred Davis, the man who’s previously brought us Paris Hilton / Obama comparison ad and the now infamous Demon Sheep. It is an eight-minute epic casting Sen. Barbara Boxer (Democrat / California) as a self-obsessed, vacuous and untrustworthy creature that slowly transforms into a giant blimp that floats and festers across the skies of California.
It would be fair to say that the spot will be polarising and will probably do as much damage to Carly Fiorina’s campaign as good. But it passes the first test of any piece of advertising – it cuts through and gets people talking.
