John Edwards’ Hair Piece (Piece Of Video, That Is)

I didn’t watch the entire Democratic Presidential debate last night, but it was formatted so that the questions were asked by ordinary people via their own YouTube videos.
Each campaign also was given time to play their own video. Here’s the one from John Edwards:

I’m not a huge fan of John Edwards, but I love this video. Freakin’ love it.

  1. Well played on Edwards’ part. I’m not a huge fan of his either, but I can’t really put my finger on why.

  2. Hey Danny:
    This was far and away my favorite one of the candidates videos too. I thought it was just such a great f-you to his critics and overall comment on how we get obsessed with superficial things when we should be focusing on the issues.
    Anyone know who did it? Curious if any ad people had a hand in the making.

  3. He could just shave it off and move on if he wanted to prove the point. That way he wouldn’t look like a guest on “The Love Boat.” My problem with Edwards is that whenever I think of him I make a little video in my head. The video is a slow pullback of the aerial showing his 28,000-plus-square-foot home and the audio is him talking about “two Americas.”
