John McCain Knocks Off Ocean's 13, Teases candidacy Announcement
John McCain has just released a very cinematic "teaser trailer" for his scheduled April 25th announcement for presidential Candidacy. The video is a clear Ocean's 13 knock off, stylized in a clear attempt to cater to young voters and convey a hip image. Um, it's McCain! He's really good at being old and drab and opinionated. Shouldn't he stick to that? How could he expect such a bright, savvy generation of young people to fall for this? While the words coming out of McCain's mouth are clearly a truthful portrayal of what he stands for, I can't help but think the stylized silliness will cause young people to tune out. Anything presented in such a dishonest fashion will go in one ear and out the other, underlying message and all.
