About David Burn

Co-founder and editor of AdPulp. I wrote my first ad for a political candidate when I was 17 years old. She won her race and I felt the seductive power of advertising for the first time. I worked for seven agencies in five states before launching my own practice in 2009. Today, I am head of brand strategy and creative at Bonehook in Portland, Oregon.

  1. You’re right. it’s an amazing video.
    Reverse propaganda that hits deep into its target.
    SRP

  2. I hope many smart independent voters see that.

  3. I see the “ad” for Obama, but I don’t see “reverse propaganda.” To me, propaganda implies the forwarding of untruths for devious ends. Maybe that’s just my reading of the word. Anyway, I see a noble purpose here and a simple unmasking of truths. What truths? Here’s one: conservative talk radio creates parrots out of people.

  4. Of course you’re right. The term has the meaning you suggest.
    I meant to say the marchers for McCain are unwittingly serving as propaganda for Obama.

  5. Read "Deer Hunting with Jesus" says:

    The thing that makes me laugh the most is this: the “get a job” remarks. First, that shit is so 60’s.
    But the funniest part that i just don’t get is why the people there in line to support McCain are any more “employed” than the Obama Clan. Isn’t it the same time of day for everyone? Is the thought, “these Obama folks wouldn’t be here right now if they had a job”?
    Totally perplexing. I guess reason is something I have to stop using if I am ever to understand the mentality of the far right.

  6. I *love* the song in this video – lazy web activate – form of someone letting me know who sings that song!
