An unathorized Barack Obama online commercial features the legendary "1984" ad by Apple Computers. The ad shows a futuristic world where mindless citizens are lectured by a huge visage of Hillary Clinton.
Here's the ad:
And here's a much crappier version of the ad using the same concept...
...that I made back in July, 2006.
Now, maybe they didn't get the idea from my video, but I'm just sayin'...
Oh, and judging from how high up on the page at The Drudge Report this story is, it wouldn't surprise me if pro-Republican Youtubers were responsible for the ad. They'd love to stir up trouble among the Democratic party contenders. I have a feeling we're going to see a lot of nasty politics playing out on Youtube and other streaming video services. I remember a couple instances of something like that happening during the Lamont campaign from mysterious anonymous sources.
Hmmm...now that I mention it, I wonder if some of that missing $387,000 could have gone for non-authorized political ads?
UPDATE: Whew, I was right that Drudge is loving this video! It's been up on the top of the left column for 24 hours now (6PM EDT MONDAY), and that makes perfect sense to me. The denizens of Wingnuttia love nothing better than a good game of "let's you and him fight" between the Democratic frontrunners.
Of course, when the time comes for the Republicans to duke it out, something tells me there's gonna be a shitload of nasty sniping among them that will make Barack and Hillary look like bestest buddies!
