I saw my wife, slightly drunk, yelling at the TV, “don’t go in there! Don’t go in the church you moron!” She’s watching our wedding video again. @slopezau
Timely message from an American politician. Save you watching it; here’s the best line.
Check with your doctor, or anyone who reads words…
I hope you don’t think we’re being partisan; this is the second ad we’ve posted from the anti-Trump Lincoln Project. It’s audacious. It juxtaposes the soundtrack of an ad run by a previous Republican president with images from the current Republican presidency. To good effect.
Imagine you’re Daren Newman, given the job of designing the unofficial logo for the Olympic Games. You do the job; you cleverly combine the national flag and the five rings and the design is described by most in the industry as a masterclass in design. Can’t wait for 4 billion people to see that on TV…
It seems nothing can escape the advertising jingle. In the briefing meeting on reducing methane emissions some creative puts his hand up and says ‘don’t worry guys; I got this: a country n’ western jingle with a kid in a 10 gallon hat’.
On one level this is an encapsulation of 40 years of American news stories, on another it’s an account of why we need independent journalism. The climax is Keisha Lance Bottoms’ passionate reminder that all media is local.
I feel so old. Apparently this Internet thing is going to be big.
Here’s a link to a larger image size in case your vision’s going.
The Lincoln Project is a group of Republican wonks who believe Donald Trump is a threat to America. They are campaigning for his removal at the ballot box. Their videos generate millions of hits. They are crowd-funded and the ads are harder-hitting than the Democrat’s official campaign ads. And they’re quick; no approvals process. This one was up within 24 hours of the allegation being made. Likely we’ll see similar third-party political advertising plays in Australia and other countries. High on message-focus and timeliness, low on production values.
Artist Pierre Brault’s clever plea, but don’t be fooled – it’s CGI, not a real-world installation.

Wonderful technical accomplishment this ad, and strategically just as good.
