I Like Ike – Animated Eisenhower Presidential Commercial

Not being American I don’t know fully how their political system works but during last year’s election, which seemed to go on for ever, I did notice that most of their campaign ads just seemed to be more about picking out the faults of the other guy than showing their own virtues. (I hope that makes sense!) This seems to be the whole ideal of political ads the world over these days, especially here in Australia too.

How refreshing it is to see this Eisenhower campaign ad from 1952 which just features Disney animation and an annoyingly catchy song.

  1. Your blog is pretty cool to me and your topics are very relevant. I was browsing around and came across something you might find interesting. I was guilty of 3 of them with my sites. “99% of blog managers are committing these 5 errors”. http://bit.ly/syWJZ9 You will be suprised how fast they are to fix.
