Your Obama Ad, Oliver Stone Approved
Moveon.org is asking members to submit a 30-second ad for the Sen. Barack Obama. Best of all, the group has recruited academics, activists, authors, and celebrities to pick the winner.
Oliver Stone, Moby, Jesse Jackson, Ben Afleck, Steve Buscemi, Lawrence Lessig are just some of the folks that will pick the ad that will run nationwide. (One wonders how the cinematic preferences of Stone, Affleck, Jackson, et al will mesh.)
MoveOn.org executive director Eli Pariser explains the contest:
"We've already seen an amazing outpouring of creativity," Pariser says in the ad, citing the will.i.am video for Obama.
Contestants can submit an ad from March 27th through April 1st. MoveOn members start voting on April 3rd. The winner is announced April 10th, and the ad will be on the air in time for the April 22nd Pennsylvania Primary. The winner also receives $20,000 in video equipment.
We wonder if our colleagues at Slate will once again submit a video, like they did for the Romney video contest:
