Great Campaign Ads, Ctd

Another of John Pagani’s favourites and topical too.

It is the “Smoking Man” ad for Herman Cain. It features Herman Cain’s Chief of Staff, Mark Block, then a long cheesy slo-mo grin at the end by the candidate. John Pagani says:

The Herman Cain smoking ad that’s going round at the moment is awesome.

The cheesy grin was too creepy. As someone wrote it looked like he had just closed the curtains at a cheap motel and was turning around to look at a frightened prostitute.

The rest of the ad was brilliant.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story.  And when he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.
