The Minnesota Green Screen Debate
The battle started last week when Coleman started airing "Got It," an ad that features the senator and his wife, Laurie, in their kitchen. But some liberal Minnesota blogs suggested Mrs. Coleman did not appear in person, but instead was "green screened" into the ad using chroma key technology.
"The Senator and his wife were both in the kitchen of their home where the commercial was filmed," according to Coleman Communications Director Erin Rath. In the video below, the Coleman campaign playfully suggests that Franken, who has spent most of his professional career in states other than his native Minnesota, is the candidate "green-screened" into his ads:
UPDATE 2 p.m. ET: The Coleman campaign has passed on links to outtakes from the kitchen ads that prove it was not a "green screen" production.
