Team Obama thinks it has a secret weapon that will help them lock in the support of Latino, young and female voters this election season: celebrities.
Not only have these actors, singers, fashion icons, basketball and football players helped Obama raise funds to support his campaign, but many of them have starred in one or more of his political ads as well.
Within the last week, Obama for American campaign has rolled out ads featuring Jay-Z, who spoke of the importance of voting within African-American communities; Jane Lynch and Jesse Tyler Ferguson, who spoke of LGBT issues; and Ricky Martin, who spoke of LGBT issues as well as bullying.
Martins ad was filmed in both Spanish and English, targeting not just LGBT voters but also Latino voters. Other stars that have helped Obamas campaign get out the Latino vote include Victor Cruz, Giants wide receiver, and George Lopez.
Morgan Freeman also narrated a recent ad for Obama For America called, Challenges. The ad indirectly mentions the death of Osama bin Laden. Four years later, our enemies have been brought to justice, narrates Freeman, just as the video features New York firemen below a news ticker announcing bin Ladens death.
