Do you remember Carly Fiorina’s Demon Sheep ad? Of course you do, you are probably still having nightmares over it. Well, Carly’s ad man is at it again.
From the LA Times: The ad man who brought us Demon Sheep -- along with King Rat and other strange political fauna -- is back with another outlandish production.
Call it Fred’s Zeppelin.
Actually, it’s Barbara Boxer -- blown up and distended to grotesque proportion -- floating malevolently over a travel-scape of California: vineyards, palm trees, sandy beaches, Victorian homes, the Golden Gate Bridge.
The ad for GOP Senate hopeful Carly Fiorina features plenty of creator Fred Davis’ trademark humor, from the ominous opening scene, which portrays the U.S. Capitol as something out of Alfred Hitchcock’s “The Birds,” to the finale, in which a pin-pricked Boxer sinks ignominiously into the sea.
But there’s also plenty of venom packed into the seven-minute web spot. “A problem-solver…a problem-causer,” goes one compare-and-contrast between Fiorina and the Democratic incumbent. You can guess who is who, and which is which.
In comparison to the Demon sheep ad, this one is way better, albeit a tad too long for my taste. I love how they call Boxer out as an elitist who just talks, talks, talks and has only passed 3 bills in 18 years. Ouch! Here is the video, tell me what you think.
I think that was Left Coast Rebel's hand popping Boxer’s big head with the pin!
