Who says John McCain’s web operation isn’t hip?
After the McCain campaign’s “Dr. No” hit on Barack Obama for what they depict as his naysayer approach to energy solutions got a modicum of traction in the press, the campaign has produced a short web video called Dr. No.
The spot includes a series of Obama’s remarks disapproving of various proposals to address the energy crisis, with a soundtrack obviously intended to evoke the James Bond theme. The typography, orange and green backgrounds and psychedelic circles around Obama’s head are perhaps the funkiest visuals ever used in a Republican presidential candidate’s ad. At least since yesterday.
Here’s the script:
CHYRON: Barack Obama Is Dr. No.
No To Drilling Offshore Oil.
BARACK OBAMA: Offshore drilling would not lower gas prices today.
CHYRON: No To A Gas Tax Holiday.
BARACK OBAMA: I think John McCain’s proposal for a three month tax holiday is a bad idea.
CHYRON: No To Innovation. No To The Electric Car.
BARACK OBAMA: In this campaign, John McCain is offering the same old gimmicks.
CHYRON: No To Clean, Safe, Nuclear Energy.
BARACK OBAMA: I start off with the premise that nuclear energy is not optimal. I am not a nuclear energy proponent.
CHYRON: Barack Obama Truly Is The Dr. No Of Energy Security.
