As much as I stay away from politics on this blog, I must give credit where credit is due. When it comes to marketing and advertising, an election year brings out the worst in people.
The television commercials are in full swing right now and I thank G-d for the tivo. It is so painful to watch the negative, integrity bashing that is featured in the spots. We have a congressman, Pat Tiberi, who is pimping his infant triplets in his television commercial. While I appreciate all parents of triplets, I was a bit turned off that he features them in his advertising. I am not sure how I will vote in that particular election, but does the fact that he has triplets play a part in how folks will vote? Who casts a ballot and says, hmmmmm, which candidate has infant triplets? In fact, knowing how sleep deprived most fathers are in the first two years of parenting multiples, I am sort of wondering if the whole triplet card is a big fat negative?
Yesterday, our mailbox had two real pieces of mail and four postcards from local politicians. Since I was walking the dog while browsing through the mail, I used the most slanderous filled card about the Governors race to pick up the poop. I literally scooped the poop by sliding the card underneath the turd, and threw it in the trash bin, card and all. It felt good. Really good. I was actually sad when today's mail did not have any campaign flyers. I am sick.
No one loves sarcasm more than I do. NO ONE. So it is with that spirit that I post this spoof commercial for your pleasure.
Regardless of how you vote, we can all laugh at the truth. Sometimes, fact is funnier than fiction, and this my friends, is one of those times.
