The third (total) Hal Daub for Mayor spot, entitled “Getting the Job Done”, is now up.
See it here:
We like these people talking at the camera ads, generally. It’s always good to have some “average” citizens pimping the candidate.
And to Joe Jordan’s critique from yesterday of all the ads, (he noted that Daub’s ad was lilly-white) note that this one has: a white woman; an African American woman; a Latino woman; an African American man; and closing it all up with another white woman. (Oh, and a old whitey dude – Daub.) Heck, this could be a Children’s Tylenol ad. Take THAT Joe!
Our only problem with this is that it was clearly scripted. These are better done when the person is told to maybe talk about a theme, then uses his or her own words. Maybe that was done here, but it seems more like each line was memorized.
(Also, we need to tone down crazy-Hal-smiling-face at the end! Yikes.)
In any case, Daub’s rotation of ads will give viewers a break from seeing the other ads over and over and over.
It keeps getting more fun.
One of our readers wanted to point out Robert Nelson’s OWH column (an “Online Special”!) today about the Mayoral candidate websites.
We saw Nelson’s column, which seemed to focus on Suttle’s goofy picture viewer program. Funny thing was, Nelson ended his analysis of Suttle’s page talking about the group photo and how well put-together the site is.
