  •  MUSIC... seriously (0+ / 0-)

    A couple of Siegel's ads for Spitzer use some well known and powerful pieces of music, like "Simple Gifts" (a Shaker hymn) and "Ashokan Farewell" (from the Civil War series by Ken Burns, IIRC).  Siegel also uses "Let It Shine" in another ad.  Powerful music makes a tremendous difference.  

    You are so right - most political ads either use over-the-top Exorcist music, OR the ten-clowns-getting-out-of-the-clown-car music to show the opponent as being a buffoon.

    Does the latter ever motivate someone to say, "Man, I want to PARTICIPATE in Democracy, right now!!!".  Uh, no.  Siegel's ads get you fired up to speak out, to vote, or at the very least to pay attention and to feel that government can be positive.

      Here. Check out the one called "Tribute".  I'm a former New Yorker, so I'm biased, but I think that's a genius ad.  

      You know what's great about these ads?  They create excitement, and hope, and they raise expectations... they tell me that Spitzer isn't afraid to raise your expectations.  That's he's actually going to try to meet them.  Awesome.
