Oregon Senator Ron Wyden is different. Like Oregon.
I don’t know that I believe outsider claims from any Senator, however well meaning. The deal with being a Senator is that you’re actually the ultimate insider and you’re going to use that influence in ways you and your constituents see fit.
Anyway, the Wyden spot above is no great addition to the political advertising canon, I point to it because I’m forever fascinated by Oregonians who relish in their otherness.



About David Burn

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. Today—after working for seven agencies in five states—I am head of brand strategy and creative at Bonehook in Portland, Oregon.
