Alright, so as I posted about before, John McCain put out an ad called “Celeb” which shows Paris Hilton and Britney Spears, and compares Barack Obama to them, saying that he’s a celebrity.
Then Paris Hilton responded with the following ad (sorry, I can’t embed it – WordPress won’t let me, and I can’t upload it to YouTube: http://www.funnyordie.com/videos/64ad536a6d.
I thought it was pretty funny, and it was pretty amazing that she memorized all of that (in that short of time, even I’d have a tough time getting almost 2 minutes of script down).
Her energy policy was actually pretty good (and was proposed by several Democrats and Republicans in news interviews after the House failed to pass anything).
So, my question is, did that hurt McCain? I thought McCain’s ad backfired, but many people (especially liberals) have said that they thought it was a successful ad, and pointed to a jump in the polls for McCain. I’d really love your input on this.
McCain has since come out with a new ad, “Family,” which is a lot of the “Celeb” ad, minus the Paris/Britney pictures:
So, again, tell me what you think about McCain and Paris’s ads.
