Voting For The Better of Two Weak Candidates Is Far From Good Enough, But Do It Anyway

Are you planning to vote this fall? David Jones, advertising cartoonist and Chief Creative Officer at Third Street in Chicago, believes it’s a great idea to do so. In fact, Jones and team remind that it’s the price we must pay, if we feel like kvetching at a later date.

Our campaign celebrates complaining and explores the essential role that complaining has held in America,” says Jones.

The campaign consists of posters, street level stuff, social media and a two minute video that walks viewers through the central “VOTE and COMPLAIN” argument.

For the video, Third Street worked with Chicago street artist Ray Noland and Chicago production company Foundation Content. The VO is by improv comedian and actor TJ Miller.
