Somehow I didn’t learn of this ad until today. What I really loved about this one (and I’ve spoken several times about celebrities shooting their mouths off on politics, including those for Obama [Streisand, Damon, Baldwin]), is this:
1- Ron Howard, Henry Winkler, Andy Griffith- these are people who never do this
2- Ron’s bipartisan message
3- (most of all) The way they acknowledge they’re just celebrities and so they pay for your time by reprising their characters to get the message across. That was just absolutely brilliant, and for a kid of the 60s/70s/residuals ever since it was almost like- well, not a Beatles Reunion perhaps, but it’s way above a STAR TREK reunion (which you have every few years) or a Python get-together (which happens every so often). I’d have thought it was brilliant even if it’d been for McCain (I just would have disagreed with it).
