Superfad wants you to Know Your POTUS

"Because only you can make Presidential history."

Production house Superfad has created a series of webisodes to walk us through little known (or well known if you have any knowledge of American Presidential history) facts about Presidential elections from days of yore. Like the fact that William Henry Harrison gave the longest Presidential inauguration speech in history only to have the shortest presidency, dying of pneumonia just a month later.

These films drive you to the microsite Know Your Potus where you can see the other six videos plus the finale. Only six videos? Slackers I keed!
Whilst on the site, you can also jump to other microsites, learn some more stuff and otherwise pretend you are more informed than those frothy mouthed Fox analysts or Infotainted pundits on Comedy Central.

As a self-promo piece it's quite nice. All stop-motioney and simple and clean and well-executed and it actually adds some much-needed fun to this otherwise angry feisty divisive election.

Nice one, guys! Can you hook me up with an Andrew jackson doll? I kinda want one.
His hair is all tufty.

Now if we can all just agree to stop saying POTUS...
