Lee And Dan Do British Political Ads


We saw these floating around before but, for some reason, never wrote about them. Well, people keep sending links so we guess it must be important. And, it is. These three spots, one for each British political party (labor, Conservative and Liberal Democrat) were created by none other than Lee Ford and Dan Brooks of Lee and Dan VW Polo Suicide bomber fame. Each of these three spots, created for Britain's Channel 4, deliver each party's message in a very straight forward but fairly non-political manner. One of the spots, which features a woman waking up, confused, the morning after, in bed next to a stranger who claims she promised herself to him for the next for years really hits home.

I quite like these - but in the UK the winning party is in power for 5 years, not 4. Pretty fundamental mistake.

Overall I think the Coinservative one is the best (as a Labour voter).

A UK party can choose to call an election after 4 years, which the Labour party have done in their last two terms.
