Political flavor to ‘normal ads’
Wednesday, September 1st, 2004
Stuart Elliott in the NYT on the proliferation of political motifs in ad campaigns: “Rather than waiting until fall, as they usually do, to introduce advertising with election themes, agencies are already infusing commercials, Web sites, promotions and print ads with images of voting booths, campaign buttons, flags, debates and conventions. These trappings of democracy are being augmented with copious references to compassionate conservatism, hanging chads and states colored red and blue.”
