Blog Launch and New Ads

Tim Tagaris launches the official blog (at http://nedlamont.com/blog) with a bang - the long awaited Lamont TV commercials that are hitting the air as we speak:

Lamont ad 1Lamont ad 2

These ads by Bill Hillsman are genius, as expected. You can't go wrong with cute dogs. (Or with Markos, either, I guess.)

Tim has more on the making of the ads.

Awesome ad!

The best part is the enthusiasm of the crowd. Really shows that this is not about a single guy, but about people.

Also, these ads step out of the stodgy format, with Kos literally stepping out of the ad itself. Lieberman can air his tired voice-overs with alternating the "inspiration" or "attack" tones (the attack ads will come, you can be sure) that you hear in every political ad. Ned's going to have ads that people will like to watch.

Finally, there is the nice touch of the underdog. Lieberman got into power because of an ad about a sleeping bear - now a barking dog is going to take him out of power!

Rock the Boat, Baby!!
Please cross-post to Kos! I would do it but I don't want you to miss the credit!
