He Sure Cleans Up This Town

Grey Entertainment, a Grey Advertising unit, created a local TV spot on recycling for the New York City Department of Sanitation, but it may never be seen, due to its star, New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani.
No, the Brooklyn Museum of Art has not objected to the content.
If Giuliani declares his intent to run for the U.S. Senate before the ad’s scheduled Oct. 18 airing, the spot will be pulled because of rules on paid advertising for political candidates.
In the spot, a group of schoolchildren are concluding a tour of City Hall. As they gather inside the foyer, with its grand, curving staircase, the tour leader asks the children what they learned about recycling.
All give socially responsible answers until asked if they have questions for tour guest Giuliani.
One child chirps, “Can I slide down the stairs?” The mayor just grins benevolently. His voiceover ends the spot: “Keep recycling, New York City. With your help, it’s all falling into place.”
For the record, nobody is shown sliding down anything. –Kathleen Sampey
