"I'm Not A Career Politician"

Bravo to the OLO on this one:

Very well done. The message is quick, to the point - a humanist, a caring Canadian. Other than the sudden change in timbre of his voice -- which was jarring at first but seemed more comfortable by the end -- i can't see anything but good. Of course, i'm biased, but i like that the shots were selective (career politicians; the current PM divides Canadians) and the overall theme was 'we can do better' without saying it...
Is there going to be a tv buy on this?

I think this is for attracting new Liberals to the party, more of a grassroots use. That said, it should be used widely, best thing we've done in a while.

I'm a pretty harsh critic of Ignatieff but I will admit that this is the best effort from the LPC in a long time. Ignatieff should handcuff himself to whoever produced that spot.

I can confirm that MOS is no fan, so his opinion is interesting :)

As I said at my place, play this sort of thing during an election and the contrast with the standard CPC stuff will be like a smack upside the head. Can you imagine this versus the silly graphics and absurd voice overs they put out?

I agree with the consensus here. This is the best I've seen from the Liberal party in ...wow could it be since the early 2000's ?!?

Now everybody donate a big chunk of money so they can turn that into 2 or 3 TV commercials.

Dame said...
