Ad of the day: Remember November
The main feature today is this
movie trailer Web video from the Republican Governors Association.
The audio track employs a wall-of-sound technique that includes epic music and a mixture of excerpts from news reports and speeches all played seemingly at once. The video is a series of fast cuts using footage and stills of Obama, Wall Street, seemingly disgruntled constituents and sad children. While the election is not coming to a theater near you (at least not yet), this ad might make you wish it was.
