Zombie children ‘of the future’ blame ‘Mom and Dad’ for electing Mitt Romney...
The Daily Caller ^ | 10/27/12 | Caroline May

Posted on 10/27/2012 11:14:48 AM PDT by markomalley

A new video from the founders of a celebrated advertising agency features children “of the future” singing about the aftermath of a Mitt Romney presidency: A world where sick people are required to “just die,” the atmosphere is “frying” and “oil fills the sea.”

The children, who stare blankly at the camera throughout the video, even take pains to explicitly mention that they blame “mom and dad” for all those horrors.

The video — from the founders of the advertising agency that came up with the celebrated tagline “Got milk?” and boasts clients like Cheetos, Netflix, the National Basketball Association and Nintendo — asks viewers, “What Would The Children Of The Future Say If We Let Them Down This November?”

Watch:

The two minute 21 second video concludes with black and white text instructing: “Don’t let it happen… vote.”

The brains behind the video are Jeff Goodby and Rich Silverstein, the founders of Goodby Silverstein & Partners.

“The idea was to have kids from the future sing about a world that’s been defiled by us–by their parents,” Goodby told Co.Create, which reports that he is a registered “lapsed” Republican. “It was meant to be accusatory in some way. Something to put it in the context of some day this decision will be an even bigger one than it appears today.”

The video is not an official project of Goodby Silverstein & Partners, Co.Create reports.

Full lyrics:

Imagine an America
Where strip mines are fun and free
Where gays can be fixed
And sick people just die
And oil fills the sea

We don’t have to pay for freeways!
Our schools are good enough
Give us endless wars
On foreign shores
And lots of Chinese stuff

We’re the children of the future
American through and through
But something happened to our country
And we’re kinda blaming you

We haven’t killed all the polar bears
But it’s not for lack of trying
Big Bird is sacked
The Earth is cracked
And the atmosphere is frying

Congress went home early
They did their best we know
You can’t cut spending
With elections pending
Unless it’s welfare dough

We’re the children of the future
American through and through
But something happened to our country
And we’re kinda blaming you

Find a park that is still open
And take a breath of poison air
They foreclosed your place
To build a weapon in space
But you can write off your au pair

It’s a little awkward to tell you
But you left us holding the bag
When we look around
The place is all dumbed down
And the long term’s kind of a drag

We’re the children of the future
American through and through
But something happened to our country
And yeah, we’re blaming you

You did your best
You failed the test

Mom and Dad
We’re blaming you!

Goodby Silverstein & Partners did not immediately respond to request for comment.

The Obama Youth. Nice! Most fascist, communist dictators resort to this tactic when they are losing.

Yes. But the normal children remaining and defending themselves against the Zombies will thank their parents for defending their right to keep and bear arms.

16 trillion in debt.

Government takeover of healthcare.

Out of control immigration.

Dumbing down of children through indoctrination and teacher unions.

That’s their solution?

Be sure to go there and “Dislike” the video if you have a Youtube account. It is about 30 for and 100 against. It should be 0 for and a million against.

There is no video about an Obama future because if Obama get re-elected, no one will have the money for a video camera nor the expertise to operate it.

I know some high schoolers who are reasonably certain they won’t have a future, certainly not college, if Obama is relected.

It’s embarassing to show them the new. They are the most honest of all, in terms of how they see things.

I agree with you - it is slipping away, and they are grasping at straws. They have nothing left, so they go the most infantile feelings possible in liberals and think that it will help.

The best thing to happen to America is for THIS video to go turbo viral. This is a bigger turn off than that pudgy dyke girl and her “first time” video....

All of these kids in this video creep me out, but the blonde boy in the black and white horizontal stripes especially does. Maybe he just comes especially close to the images of the Hitler youth. And his eyes are particularly dead.

I swear, these kids really do look like zombies.

When watching the video, I got the feeling that there were people standing off- camera holding guns the the heads of the parents of the children singing. The message was “sing as if you parents’ lives depended upon it!” These children did not seem like they wanted to be there...

I seem to recall a youtube video where kids who were not old enough to vote spoke passionately about the need for us to defend our freedoms and way of life for them. Can’t seem to find it though. Anybody know what I am talking about?

“The Obama Youth. Nice! Most fascist, communist dictators resort to this tactic when they are losing.”

Yeah, Mr. Obama is seriously desparate. He is loosing and all the “nice guy” stops will go away.

I used to think folks that folks that were concerned about Mr. Obama refusing to step down were nuts. I am now beginning to think they may be right. If he looses (God willing), I’m not sure that Mr. Obama will peaceably stand down.

I don’t see it. (Peacefully standing down). If Barry loses, Americans are going to pay. Big Time. The holidays aren’t going to be pretty this year. Commies never go away peacefully. I’m looking for a scorched earth if he loses.

It’s especially telling that comments have been disabled for this video.

This kind of hit and run tactic says more about the purveyors of this crap than the video itself.

Despicable, using underage children to spread agitprop.

“I swear, these kids really do look like zombies.”

This is child abuse. These children are NOT old enough to participate in this blatant lie. This needs to be pulled immediately.

Folks should complain to YouTube that this is “child abuse.”

1. Reminds me of “Children of the Corn.”

2. If the Communists are so proud of their Marxist Youth, how come comments are disabled.

3. These children of the corn definitely don’t look like the brightest and best, and the parents dressed them as typical leftist slobs.

Interesting.

Here is a little note to the assholes Goodby and Silverstein...

Imagine an America Where strip mines are fun and free
They're not fun, and definitely not free, assholes.

Where gays can be fixed
Maybe one day when we find out the cause of their abnormal behavior, assholes.

And sick people just die
You wanted 0bamacare, assholes.

And oil fills the sea
Oil seeps up through the seas in large quantities now, assholes.

I could go on...
