With the first presidential debate set to get underway tomorrow night in Denver, why not highlight this politically-themed ditty from the folks at Chicago-based “attention” agency Third Street. The group, whose leadership including CCO, Yahoo “Ad Land” cartoonist and 15-year FCB/Draftfcb vet David T. Jones, has released this PSA encouraging young voters to hit the polls on Nov. 6. While not quite as blunt as Diddy’s “Vote or Die” directive from previous elections, Third Street is hoping to inspire Election Day turnout by telling us that real voters in ‘Merica complain, which the agency says is one of the benefits of voting.
The rapid-fire VO from improv comic TJ Miller matches the frenetic pace of the video itself, though both at times work against the message being relayed. Whatever the case, Third Street’s heart is in the right place. So yeah, kids, you wanna gripe about the state of the nation? Why don’t you vote first, then we’ll talk.
