Maybe it’s the kid in me, but a great Libertarian in Washington State, Bruce Guthrie, ran my all-time favorite political ads during his 2006 senate run.
The production of his commercials was simple enough: Lunch bags, glue, yarn and construction paper put together with very entertaining voiceover.
Bruce’s theme was brilliant: “Don’t be a party puppet!”
If you have a minute to enjoy, here are two spots that aired: the Party Puppet Girls and Party Puppet Rick.
Now that only 53 days remain before the election, I think it’s about time we kicked off our advertising campaign!
While we sill have ongoing ballot access battles going in many states and funds are still very tight, only three weeks remain before early voting begins in some states! Despite our challenges, I don’t want to delay our media campaign any longer.
We need your creative help to get the ball rolling.
Rather than produce stuffy, standard political ads, we want to get your concepts or even full commercials.
If you’re the creative type or want to spend some quality time with a few friends and a video camera over the weekend, we sure could use the help. Please keep them to 30 seconds, leaving about 3 seconds at the end for the government mandated, “I’m Bob Barr and I approve this message.”
Once you have a concept or finished product, just send us your videos! Here’s a drop box where you can upload your videos and concepts.
Not very creative like me? No worries, you can help just as much by making a donation today. I’ll throw in the first $100 and if you can match or contribute $25, $50 or more, we would greatly appreciate the help. Click here to donate.
Thanks for everything that you do!
