All politics are YouTubeable

Nashville is going to elect a new mayor in 2007 and from my vantage point up in the bleacher seats, it seems easier to keep up with who is not running rather than with who is. However, via Brittney at Nashville is talking and an IM from Laura, I wanted to point to this YouTube posting of a clever YouTube-posted video from one of the candidates. It’s a witty and (surprisingly) well-done parody of a Geico ‘celebrity’ ad. Is this the future? Running campaign ads on YouTube is a lot cheaper than buying TV airtime. However, it better be plenty clever to go viral — even on a local level.

Disclosure: I don’t know David Briley but after viewing this, I’m thinking of hiring Bill Shick as my attorney.

  • This wannabe etymologist votes for YouTubeable – as YouTubable just calls to mind me in a bath tub. (Not that that’s a bad thing. I’m just saying is all. 😉

  • I love how genuine this part is
    If youtubolotics are to be the future, maybe it will open up a little bit of the humanity behind the horse races. Don’t know if that’s going to be a good thing or a bad thing with all politicians, but with the good ones.
