Ten freakiest political ads from US mid-terms

Adweek have compiled a list of the ten freakiest campaign ads from the US mid-term elections.  I’ve featured most of them on here before, but the ad that grabbed Adweek’s top spot managed to evade me until now.

It was created by a Democratic campaign group with intention of discrediting Republican candidate Meg Whitman’s (former eBay CEO) multimillion-dollar run to become Governor of California.

A cheap attack aimed at withering away wavering supporters.  Not great in my opinion – the narration doesn’t flow easily and the ‘buy it now’ button comment with the visual of the plane wing doesn’t make much sense.  But it’s certainly pretty ‘freaky’.
