Yes We Can

Really effective video ad inspired by Barack Obama’s speech in New Hampshire on the night of the primaries. The video features celebrities such as Will.i.am., Scarlett Johansson, Tatyana Ali, John Legend, Herbie Hancock, Aisha Tyler, Kareem Abdul Jabbar, Kelly Hu, Common and Nicole Scherzinger among others reciting along Obama’s words. Pretty nice timing to leak this video considering Super Tuesday is but a few days away. We’ll have to wait and see if this will make any sort of impact. In my opinion, I still think Hilary will will edge out a close victory for the Democratic nomination(I hope I’m wrong though) in the end but I will say if politicians want to reach out and get the youth vote, this would be the way to do it.

Check out how Tracee Ellis Ross’s shot gets snuck in at the end at the last second. It’s like they forgot about her or something. Or maybe they thought that her bugged out eyes might scare voters away.

    And this would never happen in the UK… politicians fail to enthuse anywhere near this level of support. Once in Washington, US administrations may falter and fail, but there’s something inspirational about the road getting there.

    Yeah very true. It seems up until we actually elect our president, most people are fully immersed and passionate, but afterwards it seems most people go back to not caring.
