Barack Obama: October 2008 Archives
So last night Barack Obama ran a 30 minute, $4 million infomercial on 7 networks. We think the ad was an effective one for the Obama camp. It laid out Obama's plans as president, offered supporting evidence of his competence and established an emotional connection with those who watched it.
Obama is a politician who "gets" marketing. We were impressed by his ability to sell himself, his potential and his policies in the ad. If the whole White House thing doesn't work out, he definately has a future on QVC or the Home Shopping Network.
On the fifth day of Christmas, our true loves gave to us... fiiiive goldren riiings! Four calling birds, three french hens, two turtle doves and a partridge in a pear tree. What did we get on the fifth day before the presedential election? Well, nothing...
But we bet Barack Obama and John McCain are giving their campaigns something about now... a win, win, win, fight, fight, fight speech kind of like the one below from Remember the Titans. (Yeah, we're still on our Titans kick...)
Natalie Portman wants you to vote early for a change. She filmed this video in Cincinati, Ohio at her grandma's house for voteforchange.com. Voteforchange.com is supported by the Obama campaign.
Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel say it's good to think outside the box, but it's not good to vote that way. Here's their "vote in the box" song and dance for Barack Obama:

Paris Hilton is surely pleased as well. Afterall, she was first to suggest painting The White House pink back in August, when she released a "campaign attack ad" targeting rivals John McCain and Barack Obama. (Yep, Paris is running for president. Kind of.)
The White House was lit pink Tuesday night to commemorate breast cancer awareness. Explained First Lady Laura Bush at the lighting ceremony, "In recognition of the mothers, daughters, sisters and wives who struggle with this disease, we're lighting the White House in pink, which is the color of the cause. May our lights tonight shine as beacons around the world, a signal of the United States' commitment to saving lives from breast cancer."
Now that's hot.
