Many of the national blogs are pointing out that the Hal Daub for U.S. Senate campaign has gone up with its first ad. It’s apparently a $30,000 statewide buy, and is entitled “Broken”. You can view it right here.
So upon viewing a few times, something was bothering us. We noticed that the last image of Daub seemed to be…backwards. It was as if we were looking at Hal in the mirror while he was standing right next to us.
So, with a little assistance from our pal Photoshop, we took a look at the first head shot image (Pic 1) and then compared it with the last head shot image (Pic 2), and then flipped it (Pic 3).

And sure enough! They inverted the image on the final part!
Now the way we see it, Daub should either get a free edit from his media company, or was this…intentional?
The theme is that “we need a change.”
So is the change “An Inverted Hal Daub”?
A Hal Daub who listens instead of talks, is mellow instead of intense, who…parts his hair on the right instead of the left?
We don’t know, but if that’s what they were going for…man, that’s subtle.
(So beyond all that, what do YOU think of the ad? Not the timing of it, or even of the candidate. What do you think of the ad itself? Let’s hear it, politicos…)
