Video Description: "As actor and former Sen. Fred Thompson prepares to enter the GOP presidential race, we look back at how an acting background can help in campaign ads. Produced with the Museum of the Moving Image."
Note: This video is not an advertisement, but it is a neat little commentary on how acting abilities can help a candidate to produce a more effective TV ad.
Video Description: "When Rudy Giuliani had the chance to do something to end the war, he went AWOL. He quit the Iraq Study Group and gave speeches for money. So we're asking him: where were you when it counted? Read the facts, and help put this ad on the air in Iowa: www.moveon.org"
Video description: "On Wednesday, Sen. John McCain sang "bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb Iran" to the tune of the Beach Boys' "Barbara Ann."
MoveOn made an emergency TV ad to expose McCain's reckless remarks. Help get this ad on the air: https://pol.moveon.org/donate/dontbombir an.html"
Note: This one ran about 5 months ago, but I just found it today.
Video description: "Join Barack at the 30th Annual Harkin Steak Fry in Indianola, IA on September 16th."
Note: This one probably only ran in Iowa, but I thought the intro was pretty entertaining.
