Humorous Spots Feature 'Decision Guy'

By Published on .

WASHINGTON (AdAge.com) -- The Advertising Council and the Federal Voting Assistance Program are launching a public service ad campaign urging youths to register and vote in the upcoming elections.

Several spots from WestWayne, Atlanta, offer comical portrayals of everyday situations in which a person's choice is taken away.

One spot features a young woman starting to tell a stylist how to cut her hair when a man -- "decision guy" -- comes in substitutes his choice. In another spot, someone trying to order at a fast-food restaurant has his order changed by the decision guy. The spots conclude with the tagline "Stinks when other people make decisions for you. That's what happens when you don't vote."

The Voting Assistance Program helps the Department of Defense fulfills its requirement to push voter registration.
