Clinton leaps ahead with Youtube mashup
Thursday, May 24th, 2007
When I saw Hillary Clinton’s “pick my theme-song” vote, I thought it veered hokey. Too much u2, not enough Nirvana or Greatful Dead or Miles Davis. (But at least no Springsteen.) I voted for the Temptations.
Then I saw her video mashup of people’s responses. Genius. If Hillary can pull off another even-decent mashup in the next week or two, she’s on her way to owning YouTube.
Without some radical new ingredient, it will be tough for other candidates’ ads not to look derivative.
A lot has happened since the blogads logo contest in August 2005.
