Sometimes it better not to even try, Hillary…

Ben

So most of you already saw the Obama video, “Yes, We Can.”

A friend just tipped me off to Hillary’s attempt to counter: Hillary4UandMe

I think viewing them back to back says a lot of the demographic that each candidate is attracting. 

Chances are someone over 40 won’t know most of the people in the Obama video. 

And chances are most people under 50 will wonder why those “dancers” in the Clinton video look like they have lost all control over their muscles and are flailing about wildly.

If this is Hillary’s attempt to appear hip, she might of missed the mark.  Although the thinly veiled rip off of the Jackson 5’s “abc” is nice.  And that flautist totally rocks.

Seriously, though, I’m not saying you can’t manufacture these sort of supporter videos.  I’m just saying that it should at least appear that some passion went in to it from someone other than a direct Hillary for Prez campaigner.

And, in the end, it’s just a terrible, terrible song.

As a friend said in reference to the theme of the Hillary video: “But I’m black on the inside!”

    I’m not sure where to begin. So I’ll say this: If anything as superficial as a promo video ever wanted me to not vote for someone, this would certainly fall in that category.
