Underground Yes on 50 Videos

Two videos have anonymously popped up on youtube in support of Measure 50. The first video, "Save Your Marriage: Vote Yes on 50" is a satire of a tobacco company advertisement against the measure.

The second video, "Twice in One Night: Yes on 50", is a little more risqué so to speak (the audio earned a certain BlueOregon fellow some strange looks in the library), but equally funny.

    I laughed until I cried.

    Too funny.

    On the real anti-50 ads, I particularly enjoy when "the wife" says "the politicians can spend it on ANYTHING they call a 'health program!'" with a such a sarcasticly dramatic head-roll on the word "anything" that I almost get a neck injury watching it.

    Tip to RJR: Smug, sleazy overactors don't engender sympathetic responses.

    Awesome. Not that I'm condoning violence, but I love the slap in the first one -- I can totally relate. (Happens when I tune out and then agree/disagree at the wrong moment... without the slap, though.)

    Frankly, a slimmed-down 30-second version of the first one should be aired on TV.

    OMG...I really needed that laugh today. Thank you funny video-makers and BlueOregon. The lies coming from the Tobacco Companies' ads make me want to hurl something at the TV...and it disgusts me even more how much they are on, and that anyone buy's their crap...the gym tonight had three stations playing the anti-M50 ad simultaneously. Frankly, I'm starting to wonder why the tobacco companies don't use their money for something useful...say, children's health care?

    Frankly, having watched it again...I think the first one actually responds to the anti-50 ads better than the Healthy Kids ads have (or rather have not).

    Good job Foster! The second one has been pulled off by utube but the first one is great!

    Opps I take that back... the "removed" banner is gone and it played! I like "save your marriage" best.
