Johnson - Daisy countdown / Daisy girl - (1964)

Johnson - Daisy countdown / Daisy girl - (1964)

"One...Two...Three...Four...Five...Seven...Six....Six...."

Lyndon B. Johnson: "These are the stakes – to make a world in which all of God's children can live, or to go into the dark. We must either love each other, or we must die."

Two years after the cuban missile crisis, Johnson aimed at Senator Barry M. Goldwater with this ad, suggesting that he could not be trusted, but without mentioning his name.

"The homes of America are horrified and the intelligence of Americans is insulted by weird television advertising by which this administration threatens the end of the world unless all-wise Lyndon is given the nation for his very own."
- Senator Barry M. Goldwater referring to the Daisy spot

"Sure, I could bleach, but I'd rather Borateem thank you"
