If you were to make a prank phone call to Hillary Clinton’s campaign headquarters (not that AdFreak is suggesting you do so,) what time should you pick? 3 a.m., of course, thus picking up the theme of the phone-call-in-the-night campaign commercial that seems to have helped her win in Ohio and Texas this week, and whose gist she repeated in her victory speech on Tuesday night. Already, several parodies are making the rounds online. There’s this Dr. Strangelove-inspired video from Coudal Partners. And there’s this spoof on YouTube, with a voiceover saying Obama doesn’t hear the phone ringing because he “snores too loud,” while Clinton does hear it because “she stays up all night. She wears pants suits at 3 a.m.” Sounds oddly plausible, don’t you think?
