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.
