1984 Barack Obama ad mashup.

In the San Francisco chronicle you can read about the Political video smackdown - fuss caused by the sen. Barack Obama 'signed' ad which attacks sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton.

The ad is proof that "anybody can do powerful emotional ads ... and the campaigns are no longer in control," Rosenberg said. "It will no longer be a top-down candidate message; that's a 20th century broadcast model." -- said Simon Rosenberg, president of the Washington-based New Democrat Network, an influential party advocacy group based in Washington, D.C.
Meh, it's proof that anyone with iMovie can hijack an iconic ad, isn't it? Thanks Leslie from BAP on adlist.

That theme -- reflecting a generational change in the relationship between media, politics, candidates and voters -- suggests that "Hillary 1984" could have the iconic power with the 21st century political generation that another classic political ad called "Daisy" represented to Baby Boomers, says Leyden. That 1964 spot for President Lyndon Johnson -- featuring images of a child plucking a daisy, which morphed ominously into a nuclear mushroom cloud -- battered GOP presidential candidate Sen. Barry Goldwater because it, too, portrayed "a shattering of the whole world" in both political leadership, and media.


Anyway, for those interested, you can view the "Daisy Girl ad" here.
