Errol Morris launches 11th-hour Obama ads

Oscar-winning director Errol Morris has launched a late-in-the-game ad campaign for Barack Obama, called "People in the Middle for Obama," that's designed to sway undecided voters the Democrat's way. The ads are done in typical Morris style: interviews with ordinary people against a white backdrop, with music playing softly in the background. The interviewees are all middle-of-the-road voters who claim to be more concerned with issues than partisan ideology—and who've sided with Obama. According to the press release, the campaign is "designed to be spread over the Internet to other undecided voters who may benefit from hearing the factors that helped people like themselves make up their minds."
