Who needs a giggle?
[Opens with sad piano music]
Man: Hey honey! How are ya?
Woman: Fine. I guess.
Man: What’s going on?
Woman: Well, Obama is trying to force gay marriage on this country. That’s not the change I voted for. Marriage is between a man and a woman.
Man: That’s not the change I voted for either.
Woman: What can we do?
[Sudden weirdly upbeat music]
Man: We can vote for someone with values.
The emotionally manipulative music! The weird cut-away to to the coffee mug! The acting! The procurement of the word “values”!I tried to find out more about the Campaign for American Values Super PAC but their website is literally only this video and a blue banner with a bald eagle on it. So… I guess they like America.
After some snooping, I found out that that ad seems to have cost $28,150. Money well spent, says I!
My favorite part was the creepy stilted delivery of these two lines:
“Fine. I guess.” (She really called to mind a sullen, passive aggressive teen!)
“That’s… not… the change I voted for either.” (“Umm… I’m doing some acting here so I should pause in weird spots, right? That’s what acting is!”)
What’s your favorite part?
