We won’t win with crappy ads like this. The people that are plugged in and paying attention on both sides have already decided who they will vote for so ads like this mean nothing.
If they want to pull wishy washy (I) and (D) people over to our side, they need to create more emotional ads that give weaker minded people something to grab onto. Take the Obama phone lady and put it into a 30 second commercial!
100% no BS: I was at the gym the other night when this ad came on. At my gym each elliptical trainer has its own TV. Most of the time people are watching the normal stations, so it is not uncommon for one of the bigger TVs to be playing the same thing as the little TVs on the elliptical trainer
When this ad came on, the young woman, early-20s, immediately became glued to this ad on the TV on the elliptical trainer. Two other women who did not have TVs on tredmills became glued to the bigger TV that was playing this ad. I am not sure how they will vote, but it is not going to be due to a lack of attention to this ad.
Apparently, this ad was good enough to hold their attention. In fact, if it can keep the young woman’s attention off me at the gym, it must be a good ad.
