Is the Old Spice campaign still effective? Joe Miller of Alaska thinks so. Miller, the Republican candidate for Senate in Alaska, is still fending off his rival, incumbent Lisa Murkowski, whom he defeated in the primary. Not content to simply fade away, Murkowski is trying to hang onto her seat by running a write-in campaign as an Independent.
Combining equal parts humor and attack, Miller’s commercial is currently polling well in the Wall Street Journal survey of effective attack ads. One commenter to the YouTube channel thought it outdid the original: “This is even better than the Old Spice commercial…”
If you’re not already overwhelmed by the onslaught of mostly negative political ads, check out the selections chosen by the Journal and vote on which ones you think are most effective. It’s your civic duty.
By tomorrow it should be pretty obvious which spots worked best.
