Best Consumer-Generated Ad of This Election

Wassup Guys Bat for Obama

By Published on .

OK, so obviously the people behind this spot are professionals. But in an election, they're still consumers. They weren't paid by Team Obama, but were still moved to put this out here. In my more opiniony pieces and in the comments section, I've made it clear that I'm not a fan of Barack "Spread the Wealth" Obama. But damn, this is good. According to Creativity, it was done by Charles Stone III, the director who did the original "Wassup." For those not in the know, "Wassup" started life as a short film before being picked up by DDB and used by Anheuser-Busch. (Youtube version here and after the jump if Creativity's sneaks behind a pay wall.)
